science fair, brings together more than 1,400 of the most curious and
capable young science pioneers from more than 40 countries to share
ideas, showcase cutting-edge science and compete for over $3 million
in awards and scholarships. The Intel ISEF is the world's only international
science fair representing all sciences for students in grades 9 through

one of the most respected nonprofit organizations advancing the cause
of science. In its sixth year as the title sponsor, Intel Corporation
