The Broadcom MASTERS Top 300 participate in several sports, clubs and service groups.

The 2022 Top 300 Broadcom MASTERS are a well-rounded group of students who are not only passionate about science, technology, engineering and math, but their extracurriculars as well. This year’s class comes from 35 states and two territories (Guam and Puerto Rico). Four students currently have a patent pending for their project, 12 are in the process of applying for a patent and 64 are planning to apply for a patent. It may be no surprise that 279 of the MASTERS were interested in a topic and decided to investigate it for their project, with 19 students continuing a project they started previously. Top research areas include engineering (22%), environmental and earth science (15%) and chemistry (9%).

Here are 10 fun facts about the Top 300 Broadcom MASTERS:

  1. 155 students are multilingual, speaking languages including Cantonese, German, Korean, Hebrew and Bengali.
  2. 135 do Science or Math Olympiads
