Intel International Science and Engineering Fair is the world’s most promising student scientists, inventors and engineers event. Finalists are selected annually from hundreds of affiliated fairs from the world (different countries, region and terrorist).

Their projects are then evaluated and examined on-site by 1,000+ judges from nearly every scientific discipline, each with a Ph.D. or the equivalent of six years of related professional experience in one of the scientific disciplines from the world renowned universities and institutes.

The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair 2016 is funded jointly by Intel and the Intel Foundation with additional awards and support from various others corporate, academic, governmental and science-focused organizations and companies.
