30 INTEL STS Semifinalists Mentored at Stony Brook

Thirty high school students who worked with Stony Brook faculty were named yesterday among the 300 semifinalists in the national 2012 Intel Science Talent Search competition. The mentors come from a range of departments and disciplines throughout SB, including: Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Ecology & Evolution, Geosciences, Materials Science & Engineering,  Medicine, Molecular Genetics & Microbiology, Neurobiology & Behavior, Pharmacological Sciences, and Physics & Astronomy.

The semifinalists will each receive awards of $1,000; their schools will also receive $1,000 for each Intel semifinalist named. The Intel STS finalists will be announced on January 25 and will compete for additional awards in Washington, D.C. in March. 

A number of the Intel STS semifinalists participated in summer research programs at Stony Brook, including the Garcia Center: Polymers at Engineered Interfaces – Research Scholar Program, and the Simons Summer Research Program. Twenty-one of the 22 semifinalists who worked with SB mentors are from NY (Long Island had 61 semifinalists); other semifinalists working at Stony Brook included students from California (3), Massachusetts, and Michigan.
