    Overcoming obstacles on the road to Intel ISEF

    After Lisa Ranney’s son competed at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF 1999), she began encouraging other students to attend. As a science and math teacher, she is all about promoting STEM. But it wasn’t until she learned about the Society for Science & the Public’s Outreach and Equity Programs that she began promoting science fair participation to underserved and...

    How STEM Can Forge Your Future

    By S.C.Stuart 

    Studying STEM can take a person far in life — not just economically, but geographically, too. Its importance is increasing as we enter the 4th industrial revolution, moving towards automation, A.I. empowered services and enhanced human-machine “co-bot” workplaces.  

    The Broadcom MASTERS International delegates could see first-hand that STEM is a path out of the...

    Projects: STEM in the World. Solutions in Your Backyard

    By S.C.Stuart

    In an ornate conference room at the Omni William Penn hotel, Pittsburgh (built 1916), 24 young scientists, all between 12 - 14 years old, were going through their “elevator speeches,” coached by Paula Golden, Chairman of Broadcom Foundation. They had come from as far afield as South Africa, India and China as part of Broadcom MASTERS International program, designed to give...

    STEM Activities: Radio waves, robots, and macro-invertebrates

    By S.C. Stuart

    It was their first visit to the USA, for most of the 24 young Broadcom MASTERS International delegates. Even for the few who had visited before, or grown up here, it was definitely their first time inside the electrical engineering laboratory at top university Carnegie Mellon — our first stop in a packed week of Intel ISEF-related activities.

    But as soon as they were...

    The science behind consumer DNA testing

    There are countless genes involved even in determining something as simple as ear shape and size.

    “There are genes that determine whether your earwax is wet or dry, whether your earlobes are attached or detached, and how big of a ridge you have on the outside of your ear,” said Tina Hesman Saey, a Molecular Biology Senior Writer at Science News.

    “Ears are really complex,”...

    Making a universal vaccine a reality

    Madeline Yang, a young scientist from Bloomfield, Michigan, wants to create a universal vaccine. She has been working on incorporating the influenza matrix protein, M2, into virus-like particles, which could help develop a universal vaccine.

    Her efforts have not gone unnoticed. Through a program called the Community Innovation Awards, part of the Society's STEM Action Grants, the...

    'Anything that I know about research or biology, it’s because of her'

    After a day full of judging at this year’s Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), Jessica Moore was feeling pretty great.

    “I learned a lot from the judges,” she said. “But I was really nervous at first.”

    As a high school senior, Intel ISEF 2018 was Jessica’s first time competing as a finalist. She credits a large part of her success to Elizabeth Proctor,...
