The Intel ISEF Winter Camp

   

Recently, Ren Jiajun, a student of the High School Affiliated to Xi’an Jiaotong University, who was trained in the 2018 Shaanxi Provincial Science Talent Program at XJTU, was selected into the 70th Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF). It is the first time for a student from the Shaanxi Provincial Science Talent Program to have entered this competition.

  

The Intel ISEF was founded and developed by the Society for Science & the Public of the United States. The Fair began in 1950 as the National Science Fair in Philadelphia and transitioned into an international competition in 1958. Now it’s the world's largest international pre-college science competition, covering all social and natural sciences in 22 different categories, including Animal Sciences, Behavioral and Social Sciences, Biochemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Engineering Mechanics and Environmental Engineering.
