ISEF Results

Well, ISEF was an awesome trip. I had a great time meeting new people and sightseeing around Atlanta. The fact that the trip was 100% expense paid sure didn't hurt either. The projects there were so amazing I felt it would be extremely lucky to place at all. Saying that, I was overjoyed to hear that I placed fourth in the Computer Science category. The prize money of $500 isn't going to put me through college, but free money should never be complained about. Unfortunately, I did not win any "special awards" from other organizations. I guess I will just have to try again next year. :P

For those of you who are curious, a complete list of the winners is available here.

Congratulations! I was a "chaperone" when ISEF was in Cleveland several years ago. I'm an engineer, so the experience of meeting all of those talented kids was both awe-inspiring and a little intimidating. My son won a scholarship to University of Akron (which he turned down to attend Purdue) for his project investigating aerodynamic measurements on model cars. The whole experience cemented my decision to teach science at the HS level after I get tired of working in an office...
Just getting to go is an honor that few are given -- I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Good Luck!

I can't believe you only got 4th... Did some kid manage to build a working fusion reactor?! It's a multi-touch table people! Come-on! Like your iphones, only bigger!

Well done anyway. I'm sure you'll do fin in whatever future endeavours you choose.
