Science Fair Information for Secondary Students

Welcome Teachers, Parents, and Students!

The purpose of this website is to provide more information regarding the annual science fair by level: local, regional, state, and international. Each year the University of Georgia hosts a state fair for students in grades 6-12. This year the Northwest Regional Science and Engineering Fair will be held VIRTUALLY at Reinhardt University on February 4-5, 2022. The Georgia Science and Engineering Fair will be March 31 - April 2, 2022 at the Classic Center in downtown Athens, Georgia near the University of Georgia.

Congratulations to the 2021 Northwest Georgia Regional Science & Engineering Fair winners!

Aren't Sure What Approvals You Need? Try the Rules Wizard!

The Rules Wizard was designed as a first step to help students determine which forms and approvals are necessary before beginning a science fair project.

Answer all 9 questions and a results page will provide students with a list of forms and information based on answers provided. The forms and rules should be reviewed closely with your site-based supervisory teacher or mentor BEFORE experimentation begins.

The wizard is intended to be a helpful tool, but cannot account for all specifics and situations of your individual project. Please review the International Rules.

The Virtual Regeneron ISEF SRC (Scientific Review Committee) is available via e-mail at to answer any specific questions you may have.
