Congratulations to IMACS graduate Ty Kay who is beginning his studies at Princeton.
He is a National AP Scholar who earned 5’s on the Calculus AB and BC, Computer Science A and Physics 1 exams. Ty scored 1580 on the SAT, including 800 on math section, as well as 800 on the SAT II subject tests in Math and Physics.
As a student-athlete, Ty was a leader in the classroom and on the field. He and his teammates won the Technion’s 2017 Rube Goldberg Machine Challenge, an international competition, for which they were awarded one-year full scholarships.
Ty’s pioneering performance in an independent course on Multivariable Calculus led his high school to establish a program allowing highly advanced students to study this challenging subject.
A varsity soccer player for four years, Ty won MVP honors in 11th and 12th grade and was named a captain of the team in his senior year.
Ty was accepted early decision to Princeton University where he will major in Operations Research and Financial Engineering after taking a gap year to study abroad.
What did Ty learn at IMACS? Here’s what he said:
“IMACS taught me to simultaneously think critically and creatively, imbuing me with skills that assisted me throughout high school and played a fundamental role in my decision to pursue data analysis at Princeton University.”
