The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP), is the world's largest international pre-college science competition. More than 1,700 high school students from over 70 countries, regions, and territories showcase their independent research as they compete for upwards of $5 million in prizes. The Intel ISEF is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9–12.
In 2014, Nathan Han, 16, of Boston, MA was awarded the Gordon E. Moore Award of $75,000 for developing a machine learning software tool to study mutations of a gene linked to breast cancer. Lennart Kleinwort, 15, of Germany and Shannon Lee, 17, of Singapore both won Young Scientist Awards of $50,000 for their work on developing a new mathematical tool for smartphones and developing a novel electrocatalyst, respectively.
Intel ISEF 2015 will be held in Pittsburgh, Intel ISEF 2016 will be held in Phoenix, and Intel ISEF 2017 will be held in Los Angeles.
Intel ISEF is a program of Society for Science & the Public, sponsored through 2019 by Intel.
