[italian flag]Versione Italiana

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Enrico Fermi, the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory co-sponsored a web site contest for high school students. The students were asked to design a web site about the great scientist’s life, work and contributions to physics. Sites could be created in either English or Italian.

The contest was open to all sophomores, juniors and seniors attending high schools in Illinois and Italy during the 2001-2002 academic year. Thirty-one entries were received and nine web sites were awarded a prize. The winning sites are posted on this page and can be viewed by clicking on the links below.
