High school students from 14 states and the District of Columbia have qualified to compete for the top prizes in the 2004 Intel Science Talent Search. The 40 finalists, announced on Jan. 28, conducted original research in behavioral sciences, biochemistry, planetary sciences, mathematics, medicine, and other fields.
Intel Corp. of Santa Clara, Calif., has sponsored the annual event since 1998, and Science Service, the publisher of Science News, has administered the competition since 1942, when it began as the Westinghouse Science Talent Search. Five past winners have gone on to capture Nobel prizes.
