What: The Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science competition. Take a glimpse into the future of science in America as 40 of the brightest young scientists assemble in Washington, D.C. to showcase research that examines human audio processing, which can be applied to speech recognition technology and cochlear implants; a study of mosquito-borne equine illnesses; development and optimization of a remotely piloted Micro Air Vehicle; and a new method for determining the age and mass of brown dwarf stars. The students responsible for these projects - and many others - will compete March 9-14 for scholarships and prizes totaling $530,000. The top prize is a $100,000 college scholarship. STS is part of Intel’s $100 million annual commitment to education.
