Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars), is the premier science and engineering competition for middle school students.

Society affiliated science fairs around the country nominate the top 10% of 6th, 7th and 8th grade participants to enter this prestigious competition. After submitting the online application, 300 top projects are selected and 30 finalists present their research projects and compete in team hands-on STEM challenges to demonstrate their skills in critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity.

The 2018 Broadcom MASTERS online application is now closed. The Top 300 MASTERS will be announced on September 5 and the top 30 finalists will be announced on September 19.
