With science fair season in full swing, SSP is gearing up for this year’s competitions. Here’s a preview of important 2015 program updates.

Intel ISEF categories expanded in 2015

SSP and the Intel ISEF Judging Advisory Committee are pleased to announce that for Intel ISEF 2015, there will be 20 categories in which students will compete. These categories have been selected to represent the depth and breadth of research at Intel ISEF and best align judge expertise with the projects.

Yue Yao, an Intel ISEF 2014 finalist, had never traveled alone outside of China. That changed after Intel ISEF, where Yao won a Grand Award - a free trip to the European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) held in Poland.

For the first time, Yao set out on his own to a foreign country to connect with fellow young scientists. In September, Yao presented his project on an optical computer design among 110 fellow contestants from around the world who came to Warsaw to share their research.

"I #Give2Science with Eureka! Lab, a blog where students and teachers can go to get inspired about science" - Bethany Brookshire, Science Education Writer at SSP

SSP is compiling photographs of how members of our community give back to science, whether that’s by teaching, doing research, performing experiments, inventing new things, participating in or supporting science fairs, mentoring young scientists, or even just looking at the world with a scientific gaze.

Without volunteers, Society for Science & the Public could not successfully run science competitions for students. We rely heavily on experts in various fields to step up as volunteers to judge student reserach projects. As a father of two Intel ISEF alumni, Thomas Conroy, a mechanical engineer and two-time Intel ISEF judge, shared with us why judging in science fairs is worthwhile for him.

Annika Urban won a 2nd place award in Engineering at the 2014 Broadcom MASTERS. With the money her school received for her participation as a finalist, Urban’s gone on to start SENSE, Student Exploration Network for Science and Engineering, as a way to teach robotics to other young students. Urban caught us up to her post-Broadcom MASTERS projects and shared insight and advice for other young students interested in science.

How did you initially become involved in science?
