Testimonials

"Dr. Li's guidance helped me find a research lab to work at... a priceless experience for me and has motivated me to pursue my passions in science beyond the Science Fair. Without Dr. Li's encouragement to work at a research lab, I wouldn't have the amazing and life changing experiences that make me who I am today. Furthermore, Dr. Li taught me the importance of consistency and passion by encouraging me to follow a topic of research that I am interested in. I am so excited to go to Intel ISEF and want thank Dr. Li and Ardent Academy for making it all possible!” – Sasha Ronaghi, Intel ISEF 2018 Finalist
