Attendees also can check out research done by the Regeneron ISEF 2020 finalists by visiting the Finalist Exhibit Hall. The 1,255 finalists completed 1,030 projects across 21 project categories, including biochemistry, environmental engineering, robotics and intelligent machines. The finalists come from 55 countries, regions and territories, and 44 states. In addition, 601 are female.
The ISEF Commons is home to dozens of colleges and universities, where anyone can learn about college admissions in the current climate. Visitors can learn more about what each school has to offer in addition to connecting with admissions officials.
The STEM Experiential Hall will feature interactive and immersive experiences in a variety of disciplines that participants will be able to access over the internet. For instance, take a virtual stroll on Mars, see museum exhibits, dive the Great Barrier Reef, play STEM games and watch live streams of animals around the world.
