About Society for Science & the Public
Society for Science & the Public (Society) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) membership organization dedicated to public engagement in scientific research and education. Our vision is to promote the understanding and appreciation of science and the vital role it plays in human advancement; to inform, educate, and inspire. We do this work through our award-winning Science News media group and world-class science competitions: the Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS), the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), and Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars). Intel ISEF and Broadcom MASTERS begin at local, regional, state, and national fairs that affiliate with the Society to participate. This network includes more than 400 science fairs representing more than 70 countries, regions, and territories.
About Broadcom MASTERS
Designed to instill 21st century skills building and inspiring the nation's young scientists, engineers, and innovators to stay with their STEM interests into high school and beyond, Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology, and Engineering for Rising Stars) is a national competition that begins with the nomination of 10 percent of participating students at their regional or state Society-affiliated science fair. Nominees then enter the competition by completing an online application to explain their science project, demonstrate their knowledge of STEM principles, and provide insight into their personal interests and aspirations.
After submitting the online application, 300 semifinalists are selected through a national vetting process by scientists, engineers, and educators. Finally, 30 finalists are brought together to present their research projects and compete in hands-on STEM team challenges where they are judged on their skills in critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.
Competition awards from partners include: the first place $25,000 Samueli Prize for STEM Leadership and Innovation; the $20,000 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Award for Health Advancement; the $10,000 Marconi/Samueli Award for Innovation; and the $7,500 Lemelson Award for Invention.
