“Where are you from?”

This is the question of the evening at the annual pin exchange ceremony, an opportunity for finalists at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) to get to know each other through an exchange of pins representing their country, city, or states. Students were excited to meet fellow finalists from countries around the world.

As the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, Intel ISEF, a program of the Society for Science & the Public, is a great opportunity for students to make new friends. With nearly 1,800 high school students from 80 countries, regions and territories, finalists certainly walked away with their lanyards full of pins!
