So, in another thread I found a link to results of 2011 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology: http://www.siemens-foundation.org/en/competition/2011_winners.htm Apparently competition is held in US. Out of 20 winners 14 are Asians - 70% (that is assuming Vickram Gidwani counts as Asian as well). Yet wiki lists Asians as about 5% of US population. Is it just a statistical fluke, or something more? I have heard about kids of fresh Asian immigrants working much harder in schools than their peers, is it showing here?
