COLORADO STUDENTS TAKE AWARDS AT THE INTEL INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING FAIR

Colorado students from around the state were among the awards winners at the 58th Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) held in Albuquerque, NM May 13 - 18, 2007. Below is a listing of the award winners and their hometowns.

The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), the world's largest pre-college science fair, brings together more than 1,500 of the most curious and capable young science pioneers from 50 countries to share ideas, showcase cutting-edge science and compete for over $4 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 12. The ISEF has been coordinated for 58 years by Science Service, Inc., one of the most respected nonprofit organizations advancing the cause of science. In its eleventh year as the title sponsor, Intel Corporation has committed millions to developing and promoting this competition. In addition, each year a volunteer committee representing the host community raises thousands of dollars to provide the exhibit space, support the hundreds of judges, and provide for special events that are held throughout the week-long event.
