2022 Requirements

For the 2022 Northwest Science Expo High School-the fair hopes for an in person event. A final decision will be made in January. The 2022 NWSE for middle school will be a virtual event with interviews through Zoom on April 29, 2022.

We will continue to require the research plan and other project forms be uploaded using a Google folder. For Virtual Fairs, a slide deck and 3 minute video will be required.

The Regional Fairs are also requiring ISEF forms and Research plans be uploaded instead of mailed. Regional fairs are planning a mix of virtual and in-person fairs. Check the fair page for specifics.
