On November 13th, 2013, four seniors from the Advanced Math/Science Research (AMSR) program submitted applications to the INTEL Science Talent Search (STS).  INTEL STS, formerly known as the Westinghouse Science Talent Search, is the Nation’s most distinguished and competitive science competition for high school seniors. Each November, upwards of 3000 students from all over the US submit applications that include a 20 page journal-format research paper on their long-term research project, several short answer essays on topics such as “What do you think the next big discovery in science will be,” and a statement of their attributes that make them a good scientist or engineer. 

Each application is reviewed by three Ph.D. level scientists and 300 entrants will be selected as semi-finalists on January 8, 2014. Semi-finalists’ applications are reviewed further by a distinguished panel of judges, and the finalists are announced on January 22, 2014.  Berkshire School has been honored to have several semifinalists in the past few years (2010, 2011, and 2012).  Wish the students good luck next time you see them!
