As a judge, Alex gave out two awards to encourage high school students to continue research at an early age. Alex’s involvement in the event started in high school when he was a finalist for the fair and presented his research on plasmons in solar cells.
According to their website, “The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, providing an annual forum for more than 1,700 high school students from over 70 countries, regions, and territories to showcase their independent research and compete for about $5 million in awards in 17 categories.”
