"Where Are They Now?" Turns One

For the past year, I've been writing a weekly online column for Scientific American called "Where Are They Now?" The series profiles former finalists in the Westinghouse Science Talent Search. For six decades, this contest found highly gifted young people from around the United States, and honored them for their science projects (it lives on today as the Intel Science Talent Search).

These young people went on to live varied lives. You can read the series, which celebrates its first birthday this week, here (for 2008 columns) and here (for 2009).

This is really interesting! I will have to read the other articles. It reminds me a little of The Termites discussed in Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers book. . .
