Intel Science Talent Search 2013 Selects 40 U.S. High School Seniors As Finalists

Intel Corporation recognized 40 U.S. high school seniors as finalists in the Intel Science Talent Search 2013, a program of Society for Science & the Public and the nation’s oldest and most prestigious pre-college science competition.

The Intel Science Talent Search encourages students to pursue ambitious scientific questions and develop skills to solve the problems of tomorrow. Participants are judged on their original scientific research and their achievement and leadership, inside and outside the classroom. The 40 finalists will compete in Washington, D.C. from March 7-13 for $630,000 in awards. The top winner will receive $100,000 from the Intel Foundation.

“This year’s Intel Science Talent Search finalists are presenting a wide range of research, from optimizing algae oil for biofuel to developing a new treatment for blood cancer,” said Wendy Hawkins, executive director of the Intel Foundation. “It’s exciting for the future of innovation because the U.S. needs these 40 high school seniors, and others like them, to question, explore and help solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.”

Society for Science & the Public, a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to public engagement in scientific research and education, has owned and administered the Science Talent Search since its inception in 1942.

“We commend the 40 Intel Science Talent Search finalists on their successes so far and look forward to watching them progress not only during the finals in Washington, but also during their future careers,” said Elizabeth Marincola, president of Society for Science & the Public. “They showcase how a background in science, technology, engineering and math education can provide insight into solutions for the future.”
