Regeneron STS Scholars

Society for Science & the Public and Regeneron announced the 300 students named as Scholars in the Regeneron Science Talent Search, the nation's oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors, on January 9.

Each scholar, selected from 1,818 entrants, receives a $2,000 award with an additional $2,000 going to his or her respective school, resulting in $1.2 million in total scholar awards from Regeneron. The 40 finalists chosen to compete in Washington, D.C in March will be announced on January 23.  

Last year, Regeneron became only the third sponsor of the Science Talent Search, with a 10-year, $100 million commitment.  Regeneron is a company founded with the goal of transforming lives through science and its most important and social commitment has been to support the development of highly engaged, well-trained and innovative young thinkers.

Major gravity experiment recreated aboard a satellite
A spacecraft was used to “drop” two objects and test their rate of fall. The new, super-precise findings confirm objects will fall at the same rate (in the absence of air resistance) — and that when it comes defining the effects of gravity, Einstein got it right.

Water waves can have literally seismic impacts
Certain types of seismic waves are generated by waves on large lakes. These ground waves could be used to map fault zones or to monitor ice cover in polar lakes.

The national science, technology, engineering, and math competition for U.S. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, the Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology, and Engineering for Rising Stars), a program of Society for Science & the Public, inspires and encourages the nation's young scientists, engineers and innovators
The Regeneron Science Talent Search (Regeneron STS), a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP), is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors.  Since 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse, then with Intel 1998-2016 and now with Regeneron, the Society has provided a national stage for the country's best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.
The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP), is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. Each year approximately 1,800 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions, and territories get the opportunity to showcase their independent research and compete for on average $4 million in prizes.
