The Siemens Competition, established in 1999, is a signature program of the Siemens Foundation, administered by Discovery Education. Each year, the program invites high school students nationwide to submit original research projects in math, science and technology for the opportunity to win college scholarships ranging from $1,000 up to $100,000. Students can compete as individuals or as members of a team.
The regional competition rounds will be held on-line in a secure virtual environment. Participants will present their projects via a secure cloud-based technology platform to a panel of judges.
Winners of the Regional Finals will be invited to present their research in-person to nationally renowned scientists and mathematicians at the National Finals in Washington, D.C. in December at The George Washington University.
Video, photos and bios of the 2015 finalists are available here.
