Beaverton-Hillsboro Science Expo

The Beaverton-Hillsboro Science Expo, in its fifteenth year as an affiliate of the International Science and Engineering Fair, challenges the rigor of individual and team science explorations across our large and diverse districts.  This year's fair will be held Friday, February 22, 2019.

The goals of the Beaverton-Hillsboro Expo are as diverse as our students' talents and abilities. We provide a venue for showcasing the work of our top science and math students across the districts. We encourage and maintain a climate of academic risk and proficiency that allows these students to reach their potential in the areas of science, engineering and mathematics. We foster a sustained program of success for our participating students that will generates a ripple effect of excitement for these subjects across all of our eleven high school campuses.

Through generous support from Intel (intel.com) and Vernier Technologies (vernier.com), we are able to provide staff development for our teachers, exciting events for our students, and financial support for economically disadvantaged participants. Intel's support has allowed Beaverton and Hillsboro to begin district-wide K-12 expos last year as a pre-cursor to this year's ISEF-affiliated event for our high school students. Additionally, the technical support and experience of NWSE has allowed both districts to move quickly and with confidence toward our expo goals.
