Society for Science & the Public would like to invite science research teachers at all levels of experience to gather in Washington, DC, from October 16-18, 2015, for a weekend to share best practices, troubleshoot any challenges they face in supporting students in independent science research and learn more about the Intel Science Talent Search and the Society.
Our alumni blow us away with their ingeniuty, creativity, and success on a daily basis.
Though it happens often, we still love to hear updates about their continued success- from the awards they’re winning to the impact they’re making around the world.

As SSP’s new Alumni Coordinator, I’m occasionally given the opportunity to do some seriously cool things.
The Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) is the nation's most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors. Since 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse and beginning in 1998 with Intel, SSP has provided a national stage for the country's best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.
Raymond Wang, 17, of Canada was awarded first place for engineering a new air inlet system for airplane cabins to improve air quality and curb disease transmission at this year’s Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, a program of Society for Science & the Public.
This year, more than 1,700 finalists competed at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair 2015 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Finalists qualify for Intel ISEF by participating regional, state, or national fairs associated with Society for Science & the Public.
Makayla Gates came to Washington, DC for the first time in her life last year. She flew into the city for Broadcom MASTERS 2014, where she presented her project entitled Acoustic Levitation: The Wave of the Future.
It's been a whirlwind of a year for Makayla since Broadcom MASTERS. Read more on the Doing Science blog!
Alexandra Rojek, an Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) 2011 semifinalist, is currently an undergraduate at Harvard.
She co-founded the International Collegiate Science Journal (ICSJ) over the past year, with the help of several SSP alumni, including: Malone Locke, Intel ISEF 2007-2008; Abrar Choudhury, Intel STS 2012 semifinalist; Cissy Chen, Intel ISEF 2011; Carrie Sha, Intel STS 2013 semifinalist; and Joyce Kang, Intel STS 2014 finalist.
