Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. That’s how we know four-time Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) alum Reid D’Amico is a sane genius. He qualified for the world’s largest pre-college science competition every year for four years (Intel ISEF 2008-2011). He came back year after year to share his research with more peers, take home more prizes, and enjoy the experience once more (times four!)

Sibling rivalries can step aside for this sibling success story. Brothers Shashank and Shishir Dholakia, from Santa Clara, CA, started as 2012 Broadcom MASTERS finalists in their middle school years and were proud to come home from this year’s Intel ISEF with a pocketful of award money and an all-expense paid trip to CERN.

We caught up with Shashank to hear about the brothers' mutual goals, hard work, and dedication to each other and their research.
