Middle school students are nominated to compete in the Broadcom MASTERS by SSP-affiliated science fairs held during the school year. Nominees enter the competition by completing an application explaining their science project and demonstrating their use of STEM principles - science, technology, engineering and math - in the development and presentation of their project. From entrants nationwide, 300 semifinalists are selected, including 30 finalists. SSP is honored to partner with Broadcom to encourage young scientists, engineers and innovators to pursue their interest through a competition that rewards independent research, scientific inquiry, hands-on learning and teamwork.
Broadcom Foundation and Elmer’s® Products, Inc, the Broadcom MASTERS official classroom partner, also recognize the middle school teachers who have inspired and mentored the finalists. Elmer’s will award each finalist classroom with merchandise, rewards and a $125 Walmart gift card, and Broadcom Foundation will give each finalist school $1,000. In total, Broadcom Foundation and Elmer’s will contribute more than $500,000 in prizes, awards and rebates to nominees, entrants, semifinalists, finalists, and their teachers and schools.
