In 2012, Intel and Society for Science & the Public (SSP) earned a grant from the fourth Digital Media and Learning Competition, held in conjunction with the Mozilla Foundation and supported by the MacArthur Foundation, to develop a joint digital badging initiative.
In the first year of this program, students who participated in the Society's premier high school science competitions -- the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) and the Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) -- were able to claim, display, share and promote the badges they've earned.
SSP is continuing to award digital badges to participants in the Intel ISEF and Intel STS, as well as educators, mentors, judges and volunteers who take part in these competitions. During 2014, badges for students and volunteers at SSP-affiliated fairs will also be made available.
