Fourteen high school students received scholarships to attend a virtual summer engineering camp hosted by NC State during Society for Science’s virtual Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in May.
Society for Science is dedicated to expanding scientific literacy, effective STEM education and scientific research. The annual Regeneron ISEF is a competition for high school students who have won top prize at a local, regional or national science fair to compete for a Grand Award or a Top Award. Winners receive prizes ranging from $500 to $75,000 for their projects and research.
NC State hosted a virtual booth at the event, where students and faculty members could talk to some of the top high school students in the world who have an interest in engineering or computer science.
The students were selected for their hard word, dedication and success in their project outcomes, posters and presentations.
The College puts on several summer camps each year, hosting more than 1,000 students from North Carolina and from around the U.S. and globe. Students learn to complete hands-on challenges based on engineering research. They work with other aspiring engineers to execute the design cycle, explore solutions and share their achievements.
