Projects on smarter roundworms, glowing bacteria as pollutant detectors and the shared history of bees and nematodes take three top spots
RENO, Nev. — What happens in Reno doesn’t stay in Reno, and some high
school students are very pleased about that. On May 15, three top
finalists at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair hit
the jackpot, each winning a $50,000 scholarship from the Intel
Foundation. Those prizes were part of nearly $4 million in
scholarships, tuition grants and scientific trips and equipment awarded
at the world’s largest high-school science competition.

High schoolers at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair probe the minds of distinguished scientists
RENO, Nev. — In a ceremony that’s referred to as “the passing of the torch,” hundreds of high school science students took part in a Q and A with a panel of Nobel laureates and distinguished scientists May 12. A more fitting title might be “the passing of the Bunsen burner or mass spectrometer.”
Eight giants of science offered advice to the packed auditorium during this year’s Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, which has almost 1,600 participants.
