Science Talent Search

Virtual Regeneron STS

Welcome to Virtual Regeneron Science Talent Search 2020!


The Society for Science & the Public and Regeneron invite you to attend a Public Exhibition of the Regeneron Science Talent Search 2020 finalists’ original research projects. Sign-up below to be notified when registration is open.

Regeneron STS finalists were selected earlier this year from a pool of nearly 2,000 entrants nationwide. This week, these 40 high school seniors from across the country gathered online to compete for more than $1.8 million in awards and to be recognized at the nation’s most promising young scientists. Finalists participated in a private judging process with a panel of top scientists, including interviews about their projects, scientific knowledge and critical thinking skills.


Postponed from its original date in March, the Regeneron Science Talent Search is taking place virtually for the first time in its 78-year history in order to keep finalists and their families safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to connect with the next generation of scientific leaders who are bringing a fresh perspective to solving significant global challenges.  The finalists will be at their booths and able to respond to questions from 2-4pm ET on July 25. The exhibit itself will be available for viewing through August 2.


Please also plan on tuning in to watch the Winners Award Ceremony on July 29 from 8-9pm ET and see who brings home the First Place $250,000 award!
