2012 NWSES Registration is Open

Welcome back everyone! Click on the frog in the upper right corner to get started.

Next year the Intel Northwest Science Expo will be Friday, March 23rd. This is the day before Spring Break for most Oregon educational institutions. Set-up for middle school projects will be Thursday, March 22nd. We know the timing may limit the ability of some students to participate. Please make sure that students are able to attend before adding them online. Registration will close February 22nd. Tentative dates for Regional Fairs have been updated, though individual fair pages may not be current.

Team Oregon in the Press

There's an Oregon Live article listing the Intel NWSE best of fair winners and all the members of Team Oregon by regional fair. Check it out.

If you scroll down the article you'll notice that one of the project titles is a link. Seems that the team of Forrest Betton, Eric Thomas and Demitri Hopkins from Merlo Station High School got to chat with President Obama while he was in town and share their project with him.

Media Bonus: Here's President Obama's weekly address about his visit to Intel, with some other familiar faces at about the 3:21 marker.


2011 Middle School Exhibit Map

Middle school exhibit setup is Thursday, March 31, 2011, 5-9pm. Students are not required to be present, however all required paperwork must be present and left at the exhibit overnight. Volunteers will be on hand to complete display and safety checks. Once your display is set up, flag down a volunteer in a yellow construction hat. Check the attached exhibit map to locate your project(s) and note that only those marked with an asterisk have been approved for electricity and are located near an outlet.
