Siemens Competition Invites Entries in Math, Science, Technology

Registration has opened for the 2016 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology, a significant science research competition for high school students.

Every year since 1999, the program has invited students nationwide to submit original research projects in math, science and technology for the opportunity to win college scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $100,000. Students can compete individually or as members of a team.

Regional competition rounds will be held online in a secure, virtual environment. Participants will present their projects via a cloud-based technology platform to a panel of judges who will be assembled at regional hosting universities in November.

The regional judging will take place at six research universities across the country: California Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Notre Dame and the University of Texas at Austin.

Winners of these regional finals will be invited to present their research in person to a panel of nationally recognized scientists and mathematicians at the national finals in December in Washington, D.C. at the George Washington University.

Registration and submission instructions are available online at The deadline for receipt of entries is Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

The competition is a signature program of the Siemens Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Iselin, NJ. The program is administered by Discovery Education, operated by media company Discovery Communications.
