Oregon Students Return Triumphant From International Science and Engineering Fair

Of the 25 projects selected to represent Oregon at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair this year, 14 projects presented by 17 students and representing 10 different Oregon schools, won a cumulative total of $56,400 in prize and scholarship money and three trips.
Merlo Station High School students Demitri Hopkins, 18, Forrest Betton, 18 and Eric Thomas, 18, won Best in Category with their Electrical and Mechanical Engineering project titled "Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Fusion Using an Electrostatic Focusing Lens". The boys received previous media attention when they were selected to present their project featuring an original fusion reactor design to President Barack Obama in February when he visited the Intel Ronler Acres campus in Hillsboro. The boys' school along with the fair at which they qualified to attend Intel ISEF, the Intel Northwest Science Expo, will each receive a $1000 grant as part of the award, in addition to the $8000 in prize money the boys will split.

Team Oregon Meets Conan O'Brien

One of the highlights of the 2009 Intel ISEF was a visit by Conan O'Brien. He visited the exhibit hall during setup day and interviewed lots of people. They've finally posted some videos from those interviews and some Beaverton-Hillsboro Science Expo winners were featured prominently. Who knew we had comic geniuses as well as scientific ones? Check out the "Intel Science Fair, part 1" and "Intel Science Fair, part 2" videos here: http://www.tonightshowwithconanobrien.com/intel/.
