പതിനാലു വയുകാരി ഇന്ത്യന് എന് ആര് ഐ, ഓസ്ട്രലിയയിലെ ഏറ്റവും ബുദ്ധിയുള്ള കുട്ടി
A 14-year-old girl of Indian-origin has been crowned as Australia's brainiest student in a neuroscience knowledge competition held in Sydney, reports ANI. Uma Jha, from Perth's Shenton College, in inner-west Shenton Park, beat over 4000 competitors from across Australia to bag the title.
The 2010 Australian Brain Bee Challenge is designed to test high school students on a range of topics, including intelligence, memory, emotions, sleep, Alzheimer's disease and stroke. Uma has to compete against other state winners in the national final of the competition, which included a brain-teasing anatomy exam, doctor-patient diagnosis and a neuroscience quiz. "The competition was tied right up until the end and it was a really nerve-wracking finish," News.com.au quoted Uma as saying after the event. "I've never won a national science competition before, so it's amazing."
Uma will now travel to California for the International Brain Bee Challenge in August.
