The 2014 Broadcom MASTERS application opened on February 1, 2014. To be eligible to apply, students must place in the top 10% of their SSP-affiliated science fair. The online application includes questions for students about their science fair project as well as their understanding of science and engineering in their everyday lives. Students will be required to upload a parental permission form, any fair paperwork and submit the online application by the June 18, 8:00 PM EST deadline to be eligible for national honors.
Entries will be judged during the summer and in September, SSP and Broadcom will announce the top 300 national semifinalists. From the semifinalists, 30 finalists will win an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, DC with a parent to showcase their projects, compete in teams and visit historical sites and organizations that celebrate innovation through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
