Broadcom MASTERS International Award for STEM Fair Junior Participants

SciFest is delighted to announce that it has been invited to participate in Broadcom MASTERS 2019.

The Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars) International program is an experiential award for top delegates from middle science fairs around the world. The Broadcom MASTERS encourages, rewards and celebrates the mastery of science, technology, engineering and math among science fair participants (ages -12-14).

Participating in the Broadcom MASTERS entitles SciFest to select one junior student to be a Broadcom MASTERS International delegate. This delegate will travel with SciFest’s official party to attend the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Phoenix, Arizona, May 12-17, 2019. The Broadcom MASTERS International program will consist of 28 delegates representing 25 countries, including two 2018 Broadcom MASTERS finalists from the US, and two local delegates from Phoenix. While at the Intel ISEF, delegates will participate in the Broadcom MASTERS International program that includes selected Intel ISEF events, outreach day, and additional specialized events.

The students who fit the criteria for the award have been informed and have been invited to compete at the SciFest 2018 National Final which will take place on the 9 November in the Marino Conference Centre in Dublin. Each of these students were individual winners of the ISTA (Irish Science Teachers' Association) Award at a regional SciFest@College STEM fair.

The most difficult part of doing a science fair project is actually coming up with a workable idea. Don’t worry; the majority of students have exactly the same problem. Watch the video to help you come up with that perfect idea!
