Forty high school seniors from across the United States are celebrating their selection as finalists in the country’s oldest and most prestigious pre-college science competition, the Intel Science Talent Search, a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP).

The Intel Science Talent Search encourages students to tackle challenging scientific questions and develop skills to help solve some of the world’s greatest challenges. Entrants are judged on the originality and creativity of their scientific research projects as well as their achievement and leadership both inside and outside the classroom. Finalists’ research spans from a mathematical model that can replicate cardiac arrhythmias to a fast-charging, low-cost energy storage supercapacitor to innovative stem cell research. The 40 finalists will convene in Washington, D.C. from March 6-12 to compete for $630,000 provided by the Intel Foundation, including a grand prize of $100,000 that will be awarded to the first-place winner.

“We celebrate these 40 students because their contributions to the world of science will help solve some of our most pressing challenges,” said Wendy Hawkins, executive director of the Intel Foundation. “The Intel Science Talent Search encourages hands-on experience with math and science, which is imperative in enabling young people to think critically, solve problems and understand the world around them.”

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 are inspired by the knowledge, determination and passion of this year’s Intel Science Talent Search finalists,” said Rick Bates, interim CEO and chief advancement officer of Society for Science & the Public. “With Intel, we share great excitement in the promise of their future, not only at the finals in March, but as they dig deeper into their particular research and into the challenges society faces.”
