UCF Student Viraj Joshi Receives Acceptance to the 2017 MARM Conference

Viraj Joshi

After hours of dedication and hard work we are proud to announce that Unionville student Viraj Joshi has successfully been selected to have his science project presented at the American Chemical Society (ACS)  Mid-Atlantic conference in Hershey in June.

Viraj did a science project during his days at Patton on 3D printing in the area of medicine at A.I. DuPont (Nemours) hospital's research lab. At the time, that project got him into the top 300 kids nationwide (among 80,000 students who participated).

The mission of the American Chemical Society is to advance the broader chemistry and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people. The ACS conference is mostly designed for graduate and post-doctoral students and professional scientists. A handful of undergraduates participate.

What an Amazing Accomplishment!

Title of Viraj's project -  “Ultem thermoplastic-based 3D-printed orthoses: A comparative study on the efficacy of using polymer-based 3D-printed orthoses”

In addition to the conference in Hershey, Viraj's project has been accepted at the National American Chemical Society conference in DC in August. OUTSTANDING!!
