Homeschooled teen wins top science honor


Michael Viscardi, 16, holds a check for $100,000 after winning the Siemens Westinghouse Competition in Washington on Monday. Surrounding him are contest officials.

WASHINGTON - A 16-year-old California boy won a premier high school science competition Monday for his innovative approach to an old math problem that could help in the design of airplane wings.

Michael Viscardi, a senior from San Diego, won a $100,000 college scholarship, the top individual prize in the Siemens Westinghouse Competition in Math, Science and Technology.

Viscardi said he’s been homeschooled since fifth grade, although he does take math classes at the University of California at San Diego three days a week. His father is a software engineer and his mother, who stays at home, has a Ph.D. in neuroscience, he said. ...

PHIL 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Eph.4: 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

These are not your typical science fair projects! When I was in high school we didn't get help from professors at universities or research companies. I'm glad the resources are there for them, but homeshooled or not, they certainly have a lot more to work with than a typical student!

Michael Viscardi WINS RACE DRIVING FORD!

This fellow may have won even if he had driven a Honda.

Maybe, but if the FACT is that he won driving a FORD, just what is it that makes you want to eliminate one of the factors in his current success?

Recomment: Swanson's MULTIPLE shows on home schooling here at sermonaudio:

http://www.sermonaudio.com/search.asp?SpeakerOnly=true&currSection=sermonsspeaker&keyword=Kevin%5ESwanson

Kevin Swanson :elder and pastor of Reformation Church,was raised on the mission field in Japan in the 1960's and 1970's. Together with his wife Brenda, they are bringing up five children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. He holds a Masters in Divinity degree and has authored several books including Restoring the Centrality of God in Christian Worldview and Life, and The Second Mayflower. Previously he has worked in engineering and corporate management, as well as serving as Executive Director of Christian Home Educators of Colorado.

If can't sell you on the superiority of home schooling, no one can...

What the Bible Says About Educating Your Children

My pastor has a Ph.D. I don't think it would necessarily translate to homeschool a child into winning a major competition in an unrelated field. Don't see the neuroscience-math/airplane wing design connection. Perhaps this boy did well not because his parents were so well educated, but they knew which teaching/learning method worked best for their son. An advantage of homeschooling.

I agree with John D. While I wish I could say that this story gives an I refutable affirmation of the benefits of homeschooling, the truth is that he would likely have been successful in almost any schooling situation.

Certainly it does no harm that mom has a Ph.D. Home schooled children tend to do better if the parents are well educated and have higher than average IQs.

This fellow may have won even if he had gone to public schools.

So, what's the surprise? This family may not even be Christian, but it shows some of the benefits of homeschooling.
