Each year, millions of students worldwide compete in local and school-sponsored science fairs; the winners of these events go on to participate in Intel ISEF-affiliated regional and state fairs from which the best win the opportunity to attend the Intel ISEF. The Intel ISEF unites these top young scientific minds, showcasing their talent on an international stage, enabling them to submit their work to judging by doctoral level scientists and providing the opportunity to compete for nearly $5 million in prizes and scholarships.
Society for Science and the Public partners with Intel—along with dozens of other corporate, academic, government and science-focused sponsors—who provide support and awards for the Intel ISEF each year.
