Finalists of the 2015 Broadcom MASTERS

The 2015 Broadcom MASTERS finalists were born with "goggles and beakers in hand." They read a novel a week, participate in their school plays and musicals, create origami, and build robots. The finalists watch “Cosmos,” read science and computer magazines, and listen to science programs on the radio.
