Students in the World Science Scholars program currently hail from across the United States and 30 additional countries. In addition to their passion for mathematics, scholars’ interests range from neuroscience and bioinformatics to machine learning and nanotechnology to astrophysics and climate change. By participating in the program, scholars are able to expand their knowledge in these areas and others. With such dedication to a wide array of interests, it’s no surprise that scholars are so accomplished, both in school and their extracurricular activities.
