Inspiring innovators. Enabling entrepreneurs.
Today’s students are the innovators of tomorrow. We’re helping to empower the next generation of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs by sponsoring competitions and recognising schools that demonstrate excellence in innovative math and science programs.
Inspiring the innovators of tomorrow to change our world
Research shows that science competitions are catalysts for improved education in classrooms, with a direct connection between participation in student research and ongoing success in science, including successful completion of a master’s or a PhD. That’s why we continue to invest in science competitions—to inspire a path to innovation.
Initiative for Research and Innovation in Science
Initiative for Research & Innovation in Science (IRIS) is a joint initiative of the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, the Confederation of Indian Industry and Intel. It is a comprehensive program for popularising innovation and science among students in India. Each year, IRIS reaches out to more than 1.5 million middle and high school students in India through research based science fairs that aim to identify and inspire budding young scientific geniuses.
Intel International Science and Engineering Fair
Each year, approximately 7 million young scientists from around the world vie for a spot among the 1,600 finalists at the world's largest pre-college science competition: the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF). Those who make it have the opportunity to participate in a week-long celebration of science, where they present their cutting-edge research and compete for over USD 4 million in awards and scholarships.
