The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who are passionate about science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to STEM careers, to stay true to their dream and through participation in the event, find a path, plan and resources to make it happen.
The team of teachers and administrators at AHCCS are very proud of Bryanna and know that this recognition is well-deserved. Bryanna works hard and applies what she is learning to her Innovation Academy projects.

Bryanna is a National Honors Society scholar who "attends" schools through the Achievement House Cyber Charter (AHCCS) program. She found AHCCS when searching for a school that had a great technology program. She was inspired to focus on technology by her mom. “AHCCS is unlike the other schools that I looked at; it offers more science and technology classes and offers additional opportunities to learn through the Innovation Academy Project of the Month Club," said Bryanna.
Bryanna was nominated by Dr. John C Mather, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics and Science and who serves as director of the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists, to represent Pennsylvania based on her strong academic achievement, leadership potential and passion for science. “This is a crucial time in America when we need more nimble-minded and creative scientists who are better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” said Richard Rossi, executive director, National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists. "Focused, bright and determined students like Bryanna Torres are our future, and she deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her.”
“The team of teachers and administrators at AHCCS are very proud of Bryanna and know that this recognition is well-deserved, “ says Don Asplen, CEO of AHCCS. “Bryanna works hard and applies what she is learning to her Innovation Academy projects. As a fellow technologist, it is a personal goal to ensure that AHCCS curriculum prepares our students for 21st century jobs. Bryanna is certainly a bright star on the horizon.”
During the three-day Congress, Bryanna will join students from across the country in hearing Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science recipients talk about leading scientific research; be advised by Deans of the country's top tech universities; be inspired by fellow teen science prodigies; and learn about cutting-edge advances in science and technology.
“Participation in the Congress will really help build a strong resume and network of contacts,” continues Bryanna. “Being noticed for this opportunity is a dream come true.”
