我國參與美國國際科技展覽會(ISEF)40年來，共選派學生323人次、260件作品參賽，其中得獎學生達209人次，得獎作品有168件，包括1項英特爾青年科學家獎（Intel Young Scientist Award）、4項大會歐洲參訪研習獎、12項科首獎、137項大會獎（Grand Award）及138項特別獎（Special Award），成果相當豐碩。
In order to establish the roots of science education in Taiwan and expand the international vision of our secondary school students, the National Taiwan Science Education Center (hereinafter referred to as "NTSEC") has been organizing the "Taiwan International Science Fair" since 1991. TISF has been separated from the National Primary and High School Science Fair to select student representatives for the international science exhibitions.
To increase the opportunities of international science education exchange and observation for our teachers and students, we have invited more teams from the Pan-Pacific region to participate in the event, and since then, the number of foreign projects and countries participating in the event has increased year by year.
The TISF is identified by the Ministry of Education (MOE) of Taiwan and the TISF guideline is formulated by the Science Fair Consult Commission. The judging procedure includes D&S review, three-stage interview and the award categories are Young Scientist Award, the First to Fourth award and Special Awards which refer to the ISEF and is a rigorous science fair.
A total of 521 students and 276 projects were submitted for the preliminary round of the 2022 TISF in December last year, and 254 students and 137 projects were selected for the final round of the competition. A total of 582 students and teachers from 23 countries and 179 winning works will enter the final round of the competition.
At the same time, in order to broaden the horizons of our students' scientific research and to strengthen international science education exchanges, the NTSEC will hold a series of activities during the Taiwan International Science Fair 2021, such as the opening ceremony and keynote speech, student-teacher workshops, and public exhibition, to achieve the purpose of academic and cultural exchanges through the participation of teachers and students.
Each year, after the TISF, the National Taiwan Science Education Center selects the best students to represent Taiwan to participate in international science fairs in the United States, ESI, Tunisia, Turkey and Brazil, etc. They have performed well. However, our team participated in I-Fest2 in Tunisia, MOSTRATEC in Brazil, and BUCA IMSEF in Turkey, and won gold, silver, and bronze medals, as well as first and third prizes.
Although the ISEF in the U.S. was not held in 2020 due to the pandemic, our team participated in I-Fest2 in Tunisia, MOSTRATEC in Brazil, and BUCA IMSEF in Turkey. They had won many awards, including gold, silver, and bronze prizes. The Taiwan student team's accomplishments were very impressive and evident to all.
In order to let the students who are representing Taiwan nationally concentrate on science research without any worries, MOE issues the “Regulations Governing Academic Advancement Incentives for Students with Great Performance in International Mathematics or Science Olympiads and International Science Fairs” so that the talented young scientists can have the recommendations for admission to higher education.
The Ministry of Education (MOE) has promulgated the "Regulations Governing Academic Advancement Incentives for Students with Great Performance in International Mathematics or Science Olympiads and International Science Fairs" to enable students with excellent performance in international science fairs to be guaranteed admission, recommended for admission to universities, or to study abroad at public expense, so as to nurture more outstanding scientific talents for the country.
