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 more than 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 59 years by Society for Science
& the Public (formerly Science Service), one of the most respected
nonprofit organizations advancing the cause of science. In its twelfth
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. Visit the Society for Science & the Public web site: http://www.societyforscience.org/isef/.
