The Science Talent Search is an amazing program and since 1942, has provided a national stage for America’s best and brightest young scientists to present their original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.
Every year, more than 1,600 high school seniors enter Intel Science Talent Search with original projects from a wide range of mathematics and science disciplines. Out of the 1,600 applicants, 300 are chosen as semi-finalists. Next week, the field of 300 will be narrowed to 40 future inventors, scientists, Intel engineers’ :) from across the country that will converge on Washington D.C. this spring to compete for over $1 million in awards and scholarships ranging from $5,000 scholarship grants and laptop computers to the grand prize of a $100,000 college scholarship.
