The 2018 NC Science and Engineering Fair will be held on March 23-24, 2018 at NC State University. Participants are chosen at the regional fairs. Contact your regional fair director for details on how to participate.
Hear what 2012 NCSEF and Intel ISEF award winners, Kelly Roddick and Lauren Huffstetler - NC State University 2016, have to say as they reflect on the value of engaging in science and engineering research by competing in the NCSEF.
Science Fairs provide an opportunity for students, 3rd through 12th grades, who are interested in science and technology to pursue their personal areas of interest and to display their research as a presentation in a public competitive forum. The NC Science and Engineering Fair works to create enthusiasm in science and technology while encouraging project-based inquiry. This fair gives our students the chance to compete for college scholarships, awards, honors programs and other exciting prizes.
The Education Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has released a video series designed to take teachers, students, and parents through the process of crafting a science fair project.
The six-part video series features JPL scientist Serina Diniega, engineer Arby Argueta, and educator Ota Lutz, who team up to take viewers step by step through the project design process, from generating an idea to communicating the final results in an attractive display.
