Intel NWSE Middle School Date and Location

The middle school Intel NWSE will be Saturday April 23, 2016 at Liberty High School in Hillsboro. There will be a set-up time Friday evening.

Changes to Middle School display regulations

Middle School Display Regulations 
The poster is the first thing the judges see when they review your project. It is important to do your best and organize your information in a clear way. All exhibits need to have their MS Super EZ form and project procedures, either posted or in a lab notebook. The lab notebook can also hold additional graphs and data tables.

Size Requirement: 
15 inches (38 centimeters) deep This is half the depth of a table.
36 inches (91 centimeters) wide 
74 inches (188 centimeters) high from top of table

Please note: a standard 4ft display board will fit nicely in this space. Also the goal of the science expo is to talk about what you have done, not recreate it.

New for 2016 Middle School displays can only have paper items, items that do not fit on the poster may be placed in a binder to sit in front of the poster. The only exception is for computer science projects, where a laptop is allowed to display code.

Mailing address and office location

The Intel STEM Center renovations are taking longer than the summer. I am able to collect mail from the Health and Science School office, but please send me an email to let me know if you have mailed something. I will be working from home until the renovation is finished.

Special awards

Innovation Exploration Award

From the first rocket research in 1936, to the first US satellite in 1958, to the many missions to learn about Venus, Neptune, Jupiter and most recently the Mars Curiosity Lander in 2012, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology (Caltech), is a place where science, technology and engineering intermix. JPL produces iconic robotic space explorers sent to every corner of the solar system, helping us discover how the universe, the solar system, and life formed and evolved. JPL was established in 1944 by Caltech, one of the world's premier scientific and technical universities whose mission is to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research integrated with education.
