Westinghouse Science Talent Search 1942

The Science Talent Search, a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the nation’s most prestigious science research competition for high school seniors. Since 1942, first in partnership with Westinghouse and beginning in 1998 with Intel, SSP has provided a national stage for the country’s best and brightest young scientists to present original research to nationally recognized professional scientists.

With generous support from the Intel Foundation, SSP has sought to reconnect with Science Talent Search alumni.
