Naveed Siraj, Country Manager, Intel Pakistan said:
Intel has sponsored the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) for almost 2 decades now, and each year we have witnessed tremendous talent flowing from all over the world.
ISEF is a great platform for youth as they interact with each other and share insights and experiences which help them gain confidence. I hope that the students gain more this year in terms of personal growth through healthy, constructive competition and make our country proud.
