Please join the 40 Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) 2016 finalists as they display and present their research at the National Geographic Society in downtown Washington, D.C. Intel STS finalists will discuss their projects with visitors who share an enthusiasm for science research. Society for Science & the Public and Intel are proud to support these students and hope the exhibition and interaction with them will inspire students, teachers, parents, scientists, and others. Admission is free.
Intel STS is the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science competition, providing an important forum for original research that is recognized and reviewed by a national jury of professional scientists. Alumni have made extraordinary contributions to science and have earned many of the world’s most distinguished science and math honors, including eight Nobel Prizes, five National Medals of Science and two Fields Medals. Annually, over 1,800 high school seniors from around the country accept the challenge of conducting independent science, math or engineering research and completing an entry for the Intel Science Talent Search.
