Denise Gardner was a finalist at Intel ISEF 2003. At the fair, she presented her research on red wine color stability. Fermented grapes have taken Gardner’s career a long way, from Napa Valley to Penn State. She credits Intel ISEF for much of her professional growth, and will be giving back at the upcoming Intel ISEF in Pittsburgh this May.

"I #Give2Science by introducing 5th graders to my pet Flu virus, ELMO, as part of my annual presentation of THE GERM SHOW... years later I still get "How's Elmo?" from the students." - Chuck Vukotich, Intel ISEF 2015 Judging Chair

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.

The 40 finalists of the 2015 Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) will be presenting their research projects to the public on Sunday, March 8, from 1 to 4 pm at the National Geographic Society, in Washington, DC.

The Intel STS is the most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors in the United States. This year, the 40 Intel STS finalists will be competing for $1,012,500 in awards. Alumni of the event have gone on to win Nobel Prizes, National Medals of Science and Technology, and many more accolades.

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.

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.
