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 Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) is the nation's most prestigious pre-college science competition. Annually, students entering the Intel STS compete for more than $1.6 million in awards. Only 300 students are announced as semifinalists each year.
Sriyaa Suresh was a 2015 Broadcom MASTERS finalist. When she returned home from the competition, she found she had made the local news.

The Society caught up with Sriyaa a month after Broadcom MASTERS.
