On an average day Silicon Valley is a pretty smart place.

This week however, it's going to be a little extra smart.

There are going to be 1,500 of the smartest kids on the planet in San Jose for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

It's billed as the largest, highest-level science fair in the world for pre-college students.

Students from more than 50 countries are represented.

Frankly speaking, the content of the exhibits will be above most of our heads, but they open the doors to the public Thursday to take a peak at the most visual and crowd pleasing exhibits will be featured.   Several thousand Bay Area elementary school students will be among those taking a tour that day.

The fair has not been held in the Silicon Valley since 2001.
