What kinds of projects may enter a NWSES science expo?

Students may present science or engineering projects in the areas of the natural sciences, the social sciences, mathematics, or computer science. Each project will be entered into a category. While the student must conduct the work, the student may enlist the advice of a mentor. NWSES fairs are for EXPERIMENTAL research ONLY . Students need to pose a research question and gather the data to answer it. This may include research that is descriptive and pattern seeking if the student collects the data. Or it may include asking an original question that is answered using statistics gathered by other than the student. Modeling projects are allowed if the model is used to answer an experimental research question, the structure of the model is explained and the model is tested.
