In 2012, Intel and Society for Science & the Public (SSP) earned a grant from the fourth Digital Media and Learning Competition, held in conjunction with the Mozilla Foundation and supported by the MacArthur Foundation, for a joint badging initiative. Grants were provided to enable the development of badge systems to improve academic achievement, economic opportunity, civic engagement, and opportunities for lifelong learning. You can learn more about the Mozilla Foundation's Open Badge Infrastructure initiative here.
Resulting from this grant, SSP and Intel are pleased to present a new online badging system to recognize high school students' participation and achievement in science fairs and independent student research. The SSP and Intel Digital Badging Program features SSP’s premier high school science competitions: the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) and the Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS) which reward independent scientific and engineering research.
Through a new website, badging.societyforscience.org, students who participate in these competitions, or within SSP-affiliated science fairs, will be able to claim, display, share and promote the badges they've earned. Badges also will be awarded to the science fair community at-large, including educators, mentors, judges and volunteers who take part in Intel ISEF, Intel STS and SSP-affiliated fairs.
