For the first time, the Broadcom MASTERS 2020 finalists will be competing virtually from October 16-October 21. Each of the top 30 finalists will participate in a series of online team challenges that are designed to cover multiple areas of STEM. In addition, they will be judged on their science research projects. Despite the struggles brought on by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, these young scientific and engineering minds have continued to pursue their scientific research and hobbies remotely. In addition to their incredible academic accomplishments, the students are also involved in a variety of extracurricular activities. Learn more below!
