An unconventional method by young scientist Eli Horovitz

The way to science through religion

Thousands of students will enter their school's science competitions to get a chance to compete in the South Florida Science Fair, which will be held March 18 at Miami's Dinnrs Key Auditorium in Miami.

The fair is sponsored by The Miami Herald, University of Miami and Dade County Public Schools.

One of those vying for a chance to enter the fair is Eli Horovitz. Eli is planning a career in the physical sciences, but from the outside it may seem like he is going for it wrong.

Eli, 12, a seventh-grader at the Greater Miami Hebrew Academy, plans to attend a yeshiva university in New York to earn a rabbinical degree.

His explanation is that he believes he can better understand the physical world, if he moves on to the study of tensions according to his faith and religion.

Eli's instructors report that he has exceptional ability in math and science. He started in algebra in fourth grade and although he is a seventh grader in social studies and English subjects, he takes a job in tenth grade in math and science.

The title of his science project is "Variation of real gases from ideal gas laws". This is an experimental study of real gas air behavior compared to how an ideal gas behaves in relation to the laws of Charles, Boyle and Graham.

Eli is the president of the Chemistry Club, vice president of the Astronomy Club and a member of the Student Council. He is interested in football, basketball, baseball and track.

Eli lives at 4550 Royal Palm Street, Miami Beach.
