For the first time, the Broadcom MASTERS competition was held virtually this year. Reaffirming the Society’s commitment to judging equity, the Broadcom MASTERS 2020 finalists were provided with rented laptops, high definition webcams, hotspots, professional lighting kits and other technology. The students were also given the same virtual backgrounds, backdrops and T-shirts to wear to help facilitate the collaboration skills they would need for online team challenges. With assistance and detailed instructions from the Society, the nation’s top 30 middle school scientists got ready to tackle finals week and meet each other! Below is a behind the scenes look at what the virtual experience was like.
