Summary:
The 2009 competition will comprise of middle school students currently enrolled in the 6th, 7th, or 8th grade. The middle school grade competition will be a derivative of the current competition guidelines developed by Intel Northwest Science Expo (NWSE). The guidelines set forth by Intel NWSE were selected due to the familiarity and program awareness by Oregon Science Teachers.

There are several changes for the 2009 science competition. In 2008, the competition was open to 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. In 2009, the science competition will be open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. The categories have also been expanded to cover more competitive categories. In addition, the science competition will be entirely open-class. There is no longer a requirement to roll-up from a county fair.

Intel NWSE updates and needs

We need more people to judge our 300 middle school projects. Middle school judges do not need a degree, but they need a good understanding of the category they volunteer to judge.  Follow the frog at the upper right corner of the page to sign up.

Adult sponsors and students: an SRC report was just sent to all Intel NWSE adult sponsors listing project status. Corrections to middle school projects are due March 20th.  Corrections to high school projects are due March 25th. 

Also we need more volunteers to perform safety checks on the project displays. This is a really fun volunteer job. There is a training video posted in Volunteer Info under the Intel NWSE tab at the top of the page.  Watch the video then follow the frog to online registration.
