Each year, the MathScience Innovation Center evaluates papers in many research categories and accepts the best projects from central Virginia. Camille won first place last year in the middle school Physics A category at the Metro Richmond Science Fair, and became eligible to apply to compete in this year's Broadcom MASTERS. More than 6,000 students across the country were eligible but only 1,470 students completed the Broadcom MASTERS application process. The competition spans four full days and includes presentations as well as participating in multiple challenges in Science, Technology, Math and Science. This is the second year for the Broadcom MASTERS competition.
