    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, President 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...

    Science is everywhere

    By Sophia Stuart

    Science is a collective of global thinkers bringing next-generation solutions to real-world challenges. But often our view of what a scientist is, or how s/he spends their working day, is very narrow. Broadcom MASTERS International, a program created by the Society for Science & the Public in 2012 with the Broadcom Foundation, wants to change all that.

    Students seek scientific solutions in Broadcom MASTERS International 2017 projects

    By Sophia Stuart

    On May 17 at the J. Paul Getty Museum, 26 middle schoolers from 19 countries, all rising stars in math, applied science, technology and engineering, presented the projects that qualified them for the Broadcom MASTERS International program.

    It was clear from the range of scholarship on display that despite their young age, the Broadcom MASTERS International cohort...

    From the sea bed to the stars

    By Sophia Stuart

    The excitement at the back of the bus was mounting. Twenty-six middle schoolers, called delegates, all rising global stars in math, applied science, technology, and engineering, had just flown into Los Angeles from around the world to participate in Broadcom MASTERS International 2017. They’d come from a total of 19 countries, including Australia, Brazil, China, India,...

    Global scientific collaboration benefits the world

    All it takes is a sweep across space to realize how precious life on Earth truly is. Scientists and space explorations haven't yet found life on other planets or stars.

    In May, 25 middle school delegates, representing 17 countries and six continents, were selected to attend Broadcom MASTERS International for demonstrating an excellence in science, engineering, and leadership.

    Young scientists inspired by biomimicry

    While exploring the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona, several young scientists were intrigued by biomimicry — observing and emulating nature’s adaptations to address and solve human obstacles.

    These 25 middle school students were delegates of Broadcom MASTERS International, a weeklong program run by the Society for Science & the Public and the Broadcom Foundation to...

    There's no age limit to change the world

    Get up and walk across the room. Some people don't even think about the task. But 14-year-old Charlie Hall learned not to take mobility for granted.

    Mobility assistive technology

    Charlie, a middle school student from Wales, United Kingdom, designed a sensor guidance system for wheelchairs after seeing a myriad of mobility issues two of his school teachers face every day.

    Broadcom MASTERS International delegates have their own mini-ISEF

    A natural root that has gluten-free properties (cassava), banana peels as biofuel, and a solar-powered boat that picks up trash. These are only a few of the inventions and research that middle school students from the U.S. and internationally were recognized for during the Broadcom MASTERS International program. The program happens concurrently with the Intel International Science and Engineering...
