Fish & Richardson's San Diego office is sending three sixth grade students from the Preuss School on an all expenses paid trip to Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. The students also receive $250 in spending money and a space suit. The students are Halley Cottrell, Natalicio Serrano and Paul Tran. To qualify, each student submitted an application and questionnaire and was interviewed by attorneys with the firm. The awards are part of a firm-wide effort to provide Space Camp scholarships to encourage science exploration among young people. Fish & Richardson was founded in 1878 primarily as an intellectual property firm, and represented Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell and the Wright brothers. The firm has one of the largest intellectual property practices in the country and, if this award is any indication, is constantly on the lookout for new scientific talent. The students and a teacher will attend the camp in August. The Preuss School is a public school on the University of California, San Diego campus that was chartered by San Diego City Schools in 1998 to provide rigorous educational opportunities in grades 6-12 to low-income students bound for college.
