Teens Claim Prize in Siemens STEM Education Competition

On December 5, 2012 Siemens presented their highest honor to high school students for their projects in cancer stem cell research and innovative prosthetic limb technology. The 2011 Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology is one of America's premier science research competitions for high school students. Administered by the College Board, the Siemens Competition is a signature program of the Siemens Foundation, which supports science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.

This competition is an example of how companies are seeking to address education, the number one social issue in the nation, through their philanthropic and corporate social responsibility projects. It was an amazing experience to hear about the ground-breaking work that the teens accomplished through their research and their contagious passion for science. Congratulations to all of this year's participants!
