Each of the four Grand Prize Winners is awarded an all-expense paid trip to represent Northeast Ohio in the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF) to be held May 8-13, 2016, in Phoenix, Arizona. This is a repeat performance for Michael who was also an Intel ISEF finalist as a freshman in 2014.
At NEOSEF 2016, Michael also was the first place winner in the Mathematics and Computer Science Category and won a special award from the Office of Naval Research.
