2023 Requirements

The 2023 Northwest Science Expo will be a hybrid with judges reviewing project materials in advance of the fair and in person interviews at Portland State University. NWSE high school interviews are Monday April 3, 2023. NWSE middle school interviews are Friday April 21, 2023.

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

The Regional Fairs are also requiring ISEF forms and Research Plans be uploaded instead of mailed. Check the fair page for specific deadlines.
