The Broadcom Foundation and Society for Science & the Public (SSP) announced on August 15 the selection of 300 middle school students as semifinalists in the 2012 Broadcom MASTERS® competition. This year’s Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology, and Engineering for Rising Stars) semifinalists come from 290 middle schools across the United States and Puerto Rico, and represent 117 SSP-affiliated science fairs in those communities. About Broadcom MASTERS Middle school students are nominated to compete in the Broadcom MASTERS by SSP-affiliated science fairs held during the school year. Nominees enter the competition by completing an application explaining their science project and demonstrating their use of STEM principles – science, technology, engineering and math – in the development and presentation of their project. From entrants nationwide, 300 semifinalists are selected, including 30 finalists. SSP is honored to partner with Broadcom to encourage young scientists, engineers and innovators to pursue their interest through a competition that rewardsindependent research, scientific inquiry, hands-on learning and teamwork. The public is invited to attend the free Broadcom MASTERS 2012 Science and Engineering Project Showcase on September 29 in Washington, DC where the thirty finalists will be on hand to discuss their projects.
New for 2011, team projects will now be included in category judging!! Team projects will not be judge separately from the 13 individual categories.
