Southern Arizona students won notable awards at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, held May 8-13, 2016 in Phoenix Arizona. Students attending were selected and supported by SARSEF, the Southern Arizona Research, Science and Engineering Fair, and the Youth Engineering and Science Fair in Sierra Vista.

The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair is the world’s largest pre-college science competition, and includes more than 1,700 high school students from more than 75 countries, regions and territories. Each year, the finalists showcase their independent research as they compete for approximately $4 million in awards. The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair encourages millions of students worldwide to explore their passion for innovation and develop solutions for global challenges.

Students compete as a finalist in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair after winning a top prize from a Society-affiliated fair in 75 countries, regions and territories. In addition to presenting their research on a global stage, Intel International Science and Engineering Fair finalists are judged by and interact with doctoral level scientists as they compete for prizes.

European Organization for Nuclear Research-CERN

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centers for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter and the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of nature.
