Synopsys Championship Grand-Prize winners traveled this week to New Mexico to compete with nearly 1,500 other students at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
The board of directors of the SCVSEFA is excited to announce that 75% of the competing projects from the Synopsys Championship received awards!
