Each year, the Intel Science Talent Search (Intel STS 2012) recognizes 300 high school students and their schools as semifinalists while offering the nation's most prestigious pre-college science competition. The aim of the award is to further excellence in science, math, and/or engineering education.
This year’s semifinalists, who competed for $1.25 million in awards, were selected from more than 1,800 applicants and represented 497 high schools in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and three overseas schools. Each of the 300 students named a semifinalist in the Intel STS 2012 receives a $1,000 award for his or her outstanding research and, to recognize excellence in teaching and school support of individual student research, every school receives an award of $1,000 for each semifinalist named in the competition.
Among these promising teen-age investigators, four semifinalists for the 2012 competition conducted their research under the mentorship of Einstein and Montefiore investigators. They and their mentors are noted as follows, along with the focus of their research projects.
Alumni of the competition have made extraordinary contributions to science, holding more than 100 of the world's most coveted science and math honors, including seven Nobel Prizes and four National Medals of Science. Einstein congratulates these fine young investigators whose promise was demonstrated through their accomplishment, and their mentors who encouraged their enthusiasm while providing valuable experiences that will serve them well whatever career path they choose.
