Travis Sigafoos, 12, recently competed for his fourth consecutive year at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
"The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), the world's largest international pre-college science competition, provides an annual forum for more than 1,500 high school students from about 74 countries, regions, and territories to showcase their independent research as they compete for over $3 million annually. The Intel ISEF is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9-12."
Travis was given the honor of third place in the world within the category of Behavioral and Social Sciences. Interestingly, he was one of six projects from Minnesota, who were recipients of such grand award.
He also won a distinct honor from the American Statistical Association, in which Champlin Park will also receive a one-year school membership in the American Statistical Association.
Finally, Travis is awaiting more information in regards to an offer for a graduate research position at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Bethesda, Maryland.
