In the 61st Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Inter ISEF), known as the "High School Nobel Prize," 22 students from Chinese high schools, including four Beijing students, won a total of 23 individual and group awards in various categories, according to a report from Beijing News.

The four Beijing high school students are Shen Liangbo and Tan Kanran from Beijing Number Four High School, and Huang Yuqing and Meng Xiangbo from Beijing 101 School. Shen and Tan won the group award for second place in the transportation and energy category, while Huang came in fourth in the engineering category and Meng came in fourth in the botany category.

There were a total of 1,611 students from 59 countries and regions around the world who took part in the competition. The first prize went to Qiao Ziwei, a 15-year-old Chinese-American high school student from Richardson, Texas in the United States.

In addition to receiving scholarships, the students who won awards will be invited to participate in this year's Nobel Prize ceremony. They also have priority to study at top international universities such as Harvard and MIT as well as famous universities in China such as Qinghua University and Peking University.
