Welcome to the Virtual Broadcom MASTERS 2020!
The Society for Science & the Public and Broadcom Foundation invite you to attend a virtual public exhibition of the Broadcom MASTERS 2020 finalists’ original research projects. Broadcom MASTERS finalists were selected from a pool of 3,476 entrants nationwide. Between October 16 and 21 these 30 finalists will gather online to compete for more than $100,000 in awards and to be recognized as the nation’s most promising young scientists and engineers.
The finalists will participate in a private judging process with a panel of top scientists. In addition to being judged on their research projects, they will engage in team challenges where they will be judged on their mastery of critical thinking, communication, creativity and collaboration in each of the STEM areas.
The Broadcom MASTERS is taking place virtually for the first time to keep finalists and their families safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to connect with these young scientific leaders who are bringing a fresh perspective to solving global challenges from wildfires to eye disease to data security.
The Broadcom MASTERS Science and Engineering Project Showcase will open on October 20 at 10 a.m. EDT and will be available to the public through November 4. The finalists will be at their booths and able to respond to questions from 2-4 p.m. EDT on October 20.
The Society will be providing educational materials for educators interested in bringing students to the exhibit for a digital field trip. Visitors to the exhibit will also have an opportunity to visit the STEM Experiential Hall where you can access interactive and immersive STEM experiences.
Please plan on tuning into watch the Winners Award Ceremony on October 21 at 7pm EDT and see who brings home the $25,000 Samueli Foundation Prize.
