HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE SENSATIONS

TAKE ON 21st CENTURY CHALLENGES, VIE FOR $100K SCHOLARSHIPS

Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology

NATIONAL FINALS in Washington, DC, December 3–6, 2010

Could a group of high school students hold the answers to the great scientific challenges of our time?  Find out the first weekend in December when America turns its eye to the National Finals of the prestigious Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology at George Washington University in Washington, DC.

Twenty science stars from 11 states – Virginia (Alexandria), Maryland (Chevy Chase and Silver Spring), California, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon and Pennsylvania – compete at the nation’s premier science research competition for high school students.  Up for grabs is a Grand Prize of $100,000 and national acclaim for extraordinary scientific achievement at the high school level.  On the brink of breakthroughs, these forward thinking teens showcase the next wave of cutting edge research to expert judges, presenting such projects as:

 

  • Teaching computers how to recognize emotion in the human voice with the potential to help autistic children
  • Transforming waste water into clean, efficient hydrogen-based energy
  • Research that may lead to improved early detection of cancer, enhanced diagnosis and the next generation of drug delivery agents
  • Mathematics and computer science research to help expose and prevent flaws in computer networks and improve efficiency
  • A promising new technique for extracting meaning from genomic data
  • A new image processing system that could increase air and marine transportation safety and enhance night vision
  • Research that could advance our understanding of how stars are born

The Siemens Competition (www.siemens-foundation.org) is a signature program of the Siemens Foundation, which provides more than $7 million annually in support of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in the United States.  The Siemens Competition is administered by the College Board.
