Who May Enter the NRSEF?

The science fair is open to students from grades 5 to 12 in all Niagara Regional schools. Exhibits displaying science related projects will be judged by local experts from all fields of scientific endeavor. Due to space limitations, no more than 190 projects will be allowed to enter the fair. School officials are urged to screen the projects of their students to ensure that the best projects are entered in the fair by correctly filling out the Schools Top Project form and ranking the projects accordingly.

An exhibitor may enter only one exhibit as an INDIVIDUAL or AS A MEMBER OF A TWO PERSON GROUP. All work on exhibits and projects must be the work of the student(s) involved. A project from a previous year may not be entered into this year's fair unless the project reflects a significant extension of the work on the original project. If a project has been continued please indicate so on the online registration form.

Students in grades 7 to 12 are eligible to be selected to participate in the Canada-Wide Science and Engineering Fair. Students in grades 9 to 12 are eligible to elect themselves to participate in the International Science and Engineering Fair (details about ISEF can be found under the Important Dates section of the website).
