    These 13 Society alumni are Nobel Prize Laureates

    Last week, we found out that Kip Thorne, a Science Talent Search alum, had won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his observation of gravitational waves. Thorne isn't the only Society alumni who was named a Nobel Laureate. All thirteen of these Nobel Laureates were Science Talent Search alumni, which is a pretty impressive track record for a competition.

    This alumna helped create Alaskan high school engineering academy

    Tam Agosti-Gisler, an alumna of the Society's Intel ISEF 1972, was involved with the creation of the first engineering academy in an Alaskan high school. Her efforts now encourage the next generation of students, especially girls like her niece, to study STEM fields and enter science fairs.

    In 1972, she was one of two representatives from Alaska when she went to New Orleans for Intel...

  • Heavenly research

    Most science fair projects are pretty down to Earth. Competing in the Intel Science Talent Search (STS) requires going further. It is America’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors. This year, four teens landed in the Intel STS finals on the basis of their truly-out-of-this-world research.

    Each probed some facet of astronomy. And all but one...

His mentor, Jong-Min Lee, was focusing on Huntington’s disease. Before long, David was too. This...
