2020 Regeneron Science Talent Search Postponed

The Society for Science & the Public and Regeneron have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Regeneron Science Talent Search (originally planned for March 5-11 in Washington, DC) until this summer out of an abundance of caution regarding COVID-19 and in order to prioritize the health and safety of everyone who attends our events.
