What’s New: Sharing an immersive, technology-based approach to education, Intel’s Tech Learning Lab begins a multi-city experiential tour today for students and teachers. The nationwide tour starts at the Bronx Academy of Letters in New York City.

“Intel is addressing the needs of educators through advanced technology that enables effective and dynamic classroom experiences and drives students’ skills development to prepare them for the demands of the future workforce.”
–Raysana Hurtado, education segment manager at Intel

What It Is: Intel’s Tech Learning Lab is a custom-built mobile container truck outfitted with virtual reality (VR) demo stations, powerful PCs, augmented reality (AR) and Internet of Things (IoT) smart whiteboards. Accompanied by immersive, hands-on workshops featuring artificial intelligence, coding and robotics, it will make stops at schools and other education institutions through Dec. 15.

Why It’s Important: Intel will bring innovative teaching methods to educators to help them build the leaders of tomorrow by developing fundamental career skills like communication, collaboration, self-awareness, problem-solving, critical thinking and more.

Today’s students live in a digital world. Modern teaching methods need to reflect this, with technology as a seamless integration applied across all areas of instruction. Despite the indisputable need for a sophisticated workforce, schools across the country are stuck using technologies and instructional models of the past to prepare students for careers of the future.

The Tech Learning Lab tour is designed to engage with educators and spark conversations that go beyond the classroom to fuel curiosity about the role of technology and its impact on our world and daily lives. Hands-on virtual lessons spanning arts, science and other subjects will introduce students, teachers and administrators to the power of technology as an instructional tool for the 21st century.

Why Now: The U.S. education system is changing, with drastic cuts to arts education; the rise of science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM); and innovative new models. Until now, classroom technology has been used as an add-on to existing instructional methods rather than as tools to improve or revolutionize instruction.

Cutting-edge technology-based educational programs can emphasize deeper collaboration and engagement, versus student instruction on software that likely will be obsolete by the time they enter the workforce. The future classroom is one that incorporates powerful technology and encourages creative approaches to learning, supporting education goals today and for tomorrow.

Where It will Visit: Intel’s Tech Learning Lab continues at schools across the country, with visits planned to:

  • Weston High School, in Weston, Mass. (Nov. 7-9)
  • Ron Clark Academy, in Atlanta (Nov. 15-16)
  • Design39Campus, in San Diego (Nov. 29-30)
  • McClymonds High School, in Oakland, Calif. (week of Dec. 3rd)
  • Oakland Tech, in Oakland, Calif. (week of Dec. 3rd)

PITTSBURGH, May 15, 2015 – Raymond Wang, 17, of Canada was awarded first place for engineering a new air inlet system for airplane cabins to improve air quality and curb disease transmission at this year's Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, a program of Society for Science & the Public.


Wang's system improves the availability of fresh air in the cabin by more than 190 percent while reducing pathogen inhalation concentrations by up to 55 times compared to conventional designs, and can be easily and economically incorporated in existing airplanes. Wang received the Gordon E. Moore Award of US$75,000, named in honor of the Intel co-founder and fellow scientist.


Nicole Ticea, 16, of Canada received one of two Intel Foundation Young Scientist Awards of US$50,000 for developing an inexpensive, easy-to-use testing device to combat the high rate of undiagnosed HIV infection in low-income communities. Her disposable, electricity-free device provides results in an hour and should cost less than US$5 to produce. Ticea has already founded her own company, which recently received a US$100,000 grant to continue developing her technology.


Karan Jerath, 18, of Friendswood, Texas, received the other Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award of US$50,000 for refining and testing a novel device that should allow an undersea oil well to rapidly and safely recover following a blowout. Jerath developed a better containment enclosure that separates the natural gas, oil and ocean water; accommodates different water depths, pipe sizes and fluid compositions; and can prevent the formation of potentially clogging methane hydrate.


"Intel believes young people are key to future innovation and that in order to confront the global challenges of tomorrow, we need students from all backgrounds to get involved in science, technology, engineering and math," said Wendy Hawkins, executive director of the Intel Foundation. "We hope these winners will inspire other young people to pursue their interest in these fields and apply their curiosity, creativity and ingenuity to the common good."


This year's Intel International Science and Engineering Fair featured approximately 1,700 young scientists selected from 422 affiliate fairs in more than 75 countries, regions and territories. In addition to the top winners, approximately 600 finalists received awards and prizes for their innovative research, including 20 "Best of Category" winners, who each received a US$5,000 prize. The Intel Foundation also awarded a US$1,000 grant to each winner's school and to the affiliated fair they represent.

Nicole Ticea, 16, of Canada received one of two Intel Foundation Young Scientist Awards of US$50,000 for developing an inexpensive, easy-to-use testing device to combat the high rate of undiagnosed HIV infection in low-income communities. Her disposable, electricity-free device provides results in an hour and should cost less than US$5 to produce. Ticea has already founded her own company, which recently received a US$100,000 grant to continue developing her technology.


Karan Jerath, 18, of Friendswood, Texas, received the other Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award of US$50,000 for refining and testing a novel device that should allow an undersea oil well to rapidly and safely recover following a blowout. Jerath developed a better containment enclosure that separates the natural gas, oil and ocean water; accommodates different water depths, pipe sizes and fluid compositions; and can prevent the formation of potentially clogging methane hydrate.


"Intel believes young people are key to future innovation and that in order to confront the global challenges of tomorrow, we need students from all backgrounds to get involved in science, technology, engineering and math," said Wendy Hawkins, executive director of the Intel Foundation. "We hope these winners will inspire other young people to pursue their interest in these fields and apply their curiosity, creativity and ingenuity to the common good."


This year's Intel International Science and Engineering Fair featured approximately 1,700 young scientists selected from 422 affiliate fairs in more than 75 countries, regions and territories. In addition to the top winners, approximately 600 finalists received awards and prizes for their innovative research, including 20 "Best of Category" winners, who each received a US$5,000 prize. The Intel Foundation also awarded a US$1,000 grant to each winner's school and to the affiliated fair they represent.


The following lists the 20 Best of Category winners, from which the top three were chosen:
