High school scientists from around the world won nearly $8M in awards and scholarships at Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair in Atlanta, with the $75,000 top award going to 17-year-old Robert Sansone of Fort Pierce, Florida. Sansone hopes his research will lead to sustainable manufacturing of electric vehicles that do not require magnets made from strategically important rare-earth elements.
The contest is the largest international STEM competition for teens, and 1,750 young scientists represented 49 states and 63 countries, regions and territories across the world, including Ukraine. Other top prizes went to projects in the fields of energy storage, biomedical engineering and robotics.
