The first Broadcom MASTERS competition was in 2011, five years ago. Students were in 6th to 8th grade for the first Broadcom MASTERS. Now some are juniors or ending their high school careers, while others are entering college.
The Society for Science & the Public checked in with a few alumni of the first Broadcom MASTERS to see where they are now. For many of these alumni, their successes all started with Broadcom MASTERS.
Science News, a publication of Society for Science & the Public, today announced the Top 25 most important science stories of the year. Stories were selected based on their potential to transform how people understand themselves and the world around them.
