WASHINGTON – The Intel Science Talent Search concluded on Tuesday, March 11, with a gala at the National Building Museum. Run by Society for Science & the Public, the Science Talent Search brings together 40 of the brightest high school seniors to share their research projects. Participants spend a whirlwind few days touring Washington, D.C., presenting their research and even meeting President Obama. At the gala, the top 10 projects received awards of $20,000 or more, and the first-place winner received $100,000.

This year’s first place winner was Eric S. Chen, who designed a computer simulation used to find drugs to treat influenza. Second place went to Kevin Lee, who used a mathematical simulation to better describe the shape of the heart as it beats. Eureka! Lab live-tweeted the event (follow @eureka_labs), and we have collected the tweets and articles about the finalists below. Congratulations to all 40 of the finalists for their hard work!
