The American Physiological Society (APS) is a nonprofit devoted to fostering education, scientific research, and dissemination of information in the physiological sciences. The Society was founded in 1887 with 28 members and today has more than 10,500 members. APS participates as a Special Awards Sponsor for the Intel ISEF. Each year, the APS recognizes outstanding high school research projects in life sciences. Four students receive cash awards and a year's subscription to the APS journal, "Physiology."

 

Why We Participate

The APS encourages all K-12 students to participate in their local science fairs. Science is NOT facts in a book it is a way of learning new things. APS members are encouraged to make an APS award at their local or regional science fair at the elementary, middle, or high school level to reward student's hard work in exploring new ideas.
