BZU Ranks First in Zuhair Hijjawi Competition
The BZU chemistry student Shireen Tareq Zeidani ranked first
among the undergraduate student contestants from Palestinian universities in
the Engineer Zuhair Hijjawi Competition 2012 for basic sciences- one of the
three themes of the competition.
The main idea of Shireen’s research is that the nano-scale
iron is one of the most prominent aspects of environmental nanotechnology. Shireen’s research is part of a BZU-funded project, supervised
by BZU Chemistry Professor, Dr. Talal Shahwan.
Shireen’s work is a continuation of previous research on nano-iron
conducted by the BZU chemistry students, Ma’ath Nei’rat and Saa’dia Abu
Sirriyeh, both of whom won the Hijjawi prize in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
