Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology, and Engineering for Rising Stars) is a national competition for 6th- 8th grade students designed to inspire and encourage the nation's young scientists, engineers and innovators.
To qualify for the Broadcom MASTERS, students must place within the top 10% in a SSP-affiliated science fair. Nominees then enter the competition by completing an application explaining their science project and demonstrating their use of STEM principles. Finalists have the opportunity to spend a week in Washington, DC showcasing their research projects and competing as teams in hands-on STEM activities.
In 2013, River Grace, 14, of West Melbourne, Florida won the $25,000 Samueli Foundation Prize for overall STEM excellence, mastery of STEM principles during the weeklong competition, and his project on the rain dance of radiated tortoises.
