COLORADO STUDENTS TAKE HOME AWARDS AT THE INTEL INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING FAIR

Colorado students from around the state were among the awards winners at the 65th Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) held in Phoenix May 8 - 13, 2016. Below is a listing of the award winners and their hometowns.

The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), the world's largest international pre-college science competition, provides an annual forum for more than 1,700 high school students from about 75 countries, regions, and territories to showcase their independent research as they compete for over $3 million annually. The Intel ISEF is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9-12. Visit the Society for Science & the Public web site http://www.societyforscience.org/isef/ for more information.
