The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the world's largest international pre-college science competition. Through a global network of local, regional and national science fairs, top students are selected from millions, all who have demonstrated their knowledge of science and engineering to further their understanding of the world and improve the way we work and live. From May 12 to 17, 2019, more than 1,800 young scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and makers will come to Phoenix to share their projects and compete for approximately $5 million in awards and scholarships.
Intel believes that young people are the key to future innovation. In addition to collaborating with Society for Science & the Public on the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for more than 20 years, a commitment that continues through 2019, Intel has invested millions in education initiatives over the past decade to ensure more students have a solid foundation in science, technology, engineering and math, which are crucial for success. As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Intel Foundation, we also look toward its future, and how we can address our growing concern with the widening gap in access to technology. In 2019 and beyond, we will continue to invest in programs and partnerships that bring technology experiences, skills and tools for innovation to underserved youth in the U.S. and around the world.

His mentorship of young scientists in a rural village in Kenya helps his students as they work on solving global challenges.
21:35-28:56: Interview with Esther Amimo and Salome Njeri with their project. Tabichi's students Esther Amimo and Salome Njeri of Kenya overcame gender discrimination in their country and are working to expand access to STEM for all. After being taught by a teacher who was visually challenged, they were inspired to invent an instrument that helps the visually impaired measure the length of objects. Using locally sourced materials, the girls developed a working device that they tested in schools for the blind.
