The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), a program of Society for Science & the Public (SSP), is the world's largest international pre-college science competition. Approximately 1,700 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions and territories showcase their independent research as they compete for approximately $4 million in prizes. The Intel ISEF is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9–12.
In 2015, Raymond Wang, 17, of Canada received the Gordon E. Moore Award of $75,000 for his project: a new air inlet system for airplane cabins to improve air quality and curb disease transmission.
Nicole Ticea, 16, of Canada and Karan Jerath, 18, of Friendswood, Texas both received Intel Foundation Young Scientist Awards of $50,000 for developing an inexpensive, easy-to-use testing device to combat the high rate of undiagnosed HIV infection in low-income communities and refining and testing a novel device that should allow an undersea oil well to rapidly and safely recover following a blowout, respectively.
Intel ISEF 2016 will be held in Phoenix, Intel ISEF 2017 will be held in Los Angeles, and Intel ISEF 2018 will be back in Pittsburgh.
Intel ISEF is a program of Society for Science & the Public, sponsored through 2019 by Intel.
