They have been named to a list of the Top 300 Broadcom MASTERS® — the nation's premier Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) competition for middle school students.
  • Darelle Alan Thornton, Litchfield CLC
  • John Anand, Homeschool
The Top 300 MASTERS were selected from the largest pool of applicants the competition has seen, with 3,476 students from 42 states and Puerto Rico. Science fairs across the country have cancelled their competitions and scrapped their entire seasons because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this unprecedented time, the Society for Science & the Public wanted to ensure that the Broadcom MASTERS competition would go on and also welcomed any student who registered to compete in a Society-affiliated science fair to apply. These students demonstrate tremendous determination and resilience to engage in science and complete their research projects despite the challenges in the face of the pandemic, including learning remotely.

The Broadcom MASTERS, a program founded and produced by the Society for Science & the Public, seeks to inspire young scientists, engineers and innovators to solve the grand challenges of the 21st century.
