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.
Society for Science & the Public recently provided $2,500 to ProjectCSGIRLS to support their 2015-2016 program year and their goals of cultivating a love for technology and computer science in girls and encouraging them to pursue their interest and careers in these fields.
Unsuprisingly, our alumni take on the world. Sometimes, they're invited to take part in the World Science Festival as well.
On May 31, 2015, four SSP alumni presented their research at the Ultimate Science Street Fair in New York City.
Society for Science & the Public is seeking funding to create a Teacher Guide companion for our Science News magazine. In order to successfully produce this Guide, we need to raise $22,000 on Kickstarter by July 28.
Each year, as part of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, more than 3,000 local students and teachers visit the finalists from around the world, learn about their research and participate in the Education Outreach program.
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.
On Tuesday, May 12, 2015, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) was in full swing. Pittsburgh had graciously welcomed more than 1,700 finalists to the largest high school international science fair.

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.
