Region 8 Western Regional Science & Engineering Fair

February 7, 2017 - Elementary (Grades 3-5)
February 8, 2017 - Junior & Senior (Grades 6-12)

Location: WCU Ramsey Regional Activity Center

Inclement weather is always unpredictable across our region. Unless the university itself is closed (which is highly unlikely) the fair will be held as scheduled with set up time from 8am to 9am each day. Transportation to and from the fair is the responsibility of the students and/or parents. Teachers or parents may bring and set up projects during the check-in time, but students must be present during the judging starting at 10:15am.

Registration opening soon


The fair will feature science themed exhibitors, fun activities, prizes, and a Scavenger Hunt. Teachers, please bring your classes to participate in all these activities plus check out the projects. You don't have to be entered in the fair to attend.

In order for student projects to be eligible for regional, state, and national competitions, students need to use the ISEF forms. Please read the information for each grade level. The forms are used to verify that the student’s work has been planned prior to starting experimentation and supervised by someone with knowledge of safety issues and regulations. 

View the current judging rubric here.

Students can also use the ISEF Student Research Information and ISEF Rules Wizard to assist in determining which forms are needed for their project. The following information has been taken from the ISEF website and explains each form in detail.
