When 1,600 of the world’s best and brightest high school students turn their attention to scientific issues of the day, problems get solved.
At this year’s Intel ISEF, finalists explored everything from quantum theory and the nature of sub-atomic particles to the mysteries and mathematical underpinnings of the universe. Projects included potential treatments and cures for medical diseases, research on alternative fuels and environmental preservation, and the creation of gizmos and gadgets that simply enhance people’s day-to-day experiences.
Though the projects are incredibly diverse, one constant runs throughout. Each of these efforts has been inspired by curiosity, shaped through intellect, and driven with a passion for discovery.
