From May 12-17, 2013, more than 1,500 high school students from over 70 countries will compete in the annual Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Phoenix, Arizona. The world's largest pre-college science and engineering competition, the fair hosts the brightest and most talented young researchers in science, engineering and math.
In last year's competition, 15-year-old Jack Andraka of North Country High School in Glen Burnie, Maryland, won first place, the best of the best award, for his work developing a new non-invasive detection tool for pancreatic cancer.
Congratulations to all 2013 participants. Have fun, and best of luck in this year's competition!
