The NC Science and Engineering Fair is now affiliated with the Intel ISEF. While the ISEF competition is for high school the ISEF website provides resources helpful for students and teachers at all grade levels and all projects entered into the state fair must comply with ISEF safety regulations. The sites below provide detailed information on conducting research with your students, developing a science fair, and multiple details that will assist the teacher in guiding investigations and working with students.
