Ryan Honary Selected as Finalist in Broadcom MASTERS
Seventh grader Ryan Honary has been selected as one of 30 finalists in the 10th Annual Broadcom MASTERS®.
In early September Ryan was chosen as one of the Top 300 Broadcom MASTERS, the nation's premier Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) middle school competition. A total of 3,476 applicants in the U.S. entered this prestigious event.
Ryan's project, A Machine Learning Driven IOT Sensor Network for Early Detection & Growth Prediction of Wildfires/COVID-19, placed second in the 2020 Orange County Science and Engineering virtual fair, held on March 28-29. Since Ryan placed in the top 10% among middle school students (Grades 6–8) who entered in local (county/state) science fairs, he qualified to apply for Broadcom MASTERS, a program of Society for Science & the Public.
Ryan is the second Pegasus student to be recognized by Broadcom MASTERS. In 2017, alumnus Spencer Green '18 was selected as one of 30 brightest middle school STEM finalists in the Broadcom MASTERS® for his project, The Sonification of Accelerometers for the Training of Elite Gymnasts. He also received the STEM Engineering Award for placing second in the National Broadcom MASTERS® Competition, held in Washington, DC.
The Pegasus School is a coed, non-profit, nonsectarian day school in Huntington Beach, California, that serves students in pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8. A Pegasus education equips bright, motivated students to achieve future academic success and make a positive impact on society.
