Leading up to Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) 2017, the Society for Science & the Public has been asking our alumni to share a message for current Intel ISEF finalists on social media. We've heard some great stories, and wanted to share a special message with you from Cathy Chen, a 2007-2010 Intel ISEF finalist.


Cathy Chen participated in Intel ISEF for four years. Her science fair partner was Alexander.

Here's some inspiration for those of you with a secret crush on your science fair partner [see photo above, under headline].

That was us back then, and this is us now [see photo above]! Trust me, marriage is a lot like working on a project together :)

In all seriousness, I hope you soak up this memorable week. May you never forget the thrill of finding inspiration around each corner and the joy of making friends who are different from you. Life is sweeter that way.   

—Cathy Chen
