Andrew Sandweiss, a 2015 graduate of Bangor High School, is currently a sophomore at Yale University studying Architecture with a concentration in Urban Studies. His involvement with STEM began in 2012 when he entered the STEM Academy at BHS. Throughout his remaining years of high school, Sandweiss worked on developing strategies to mitigate the climatic phenomenon El Niño, specifically working with its recently-discovered variant: El Niño Modoki.
During his tenure at the STEM Academy, Sandweiss participated in a number of national science competitions, culminating with an invitation to present his work at the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research’s conference on “Climate Change and the Future of Water,” held in Abu Dhabi in 2014.
At Yale, Sandweiss has chosen to pursue his interest in architecture, but still works within the sphere of sustainability. Outside of class, he works as a Research Assistant at Yale’s Office of Sustainability and is the Website Manager for Urban Studies at Yale.
