Every year a group of BHP Billiton Science and Engineering Awards finalists are selected to attend Intel ISEF – the world’s largest international pre-college, science competition.

They will join approximately 1700 high school students from more than 75 countries to showcase their research and compete for $4 million in prizes.

Thanks to the generous support of the BHP Billiton Foundation and Intel Foundation, we are pleased to be sending six students along with our winning teacher Danielle Spencer to represent Australia at the fair held in Phoenix, Arizona.

The students and their projects are:

Hannah Sutton – Caerin 1.9 – A possible treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease?

Madeleine Maloof – Dental whitening and enamel loss

Hugh Mckay – Possideo Manus

Hayden Goodwin – No strings attached: an investigation into wireless charging

Terence Johnson and Lachlan Wilson - The correlation between rising sea levels and water loss from Antarctica and Greenland.

The NSW Science Teacher Association is also sending a team and three of those students are BHPBSEA winners: They are:

Samuel Kantor – Eye Connect: Using computer vision to create low-cost assistive technology

Macinley Butson – The Solar system

Jade Moxey – The spread of seeds through cattle

Good luck to all our students attending Intel ISEF – we are sure you will make us proud.
