The American Mathematical Society was founded in 1888, to further the interests of mathematical research & scholarship, as well as to serve the national/international community through its publications, meetings, advocacy & other programs. Friends and family of the late mathematician, Karl Menger, contribute to a fund in his memory, to be distributed by the AMS for annual awards at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
Why We Participate
For the AMS, this is the twenty-eighth year of participation and is the twenty-sixth year of the presentation of the Karl Menger Awards. Participation at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair allows us to recognize outstanding high school students in the mathematical areas of science and engineering, based on projects submitted at the Intel ISEF.
