FAIRFAX COUNTY

Student Takes Third in Science Contest

A Fairfax County teenager placed third yesterday in a national high school science competition sponsored by the Siemens Foundation, winning a $40,000 college scholarship.

Jacob Steinhardt, 18, a senior at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, was honored for mathematical research that could lead to the design of faster computer networks.

Steinhardt hopes to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The top prize and a $100,000 scholarship went to a Bethlehem, Pa., student whose research on bone growth in zebra fish has implications for the treatment of bone injuries and disorders in humans.
