High school students from all three district high schools are encouraged to participate! This regional fair is one of 7 and is part of the Northwest Science Exposition System — a consortium of student science, math, and engineering project competitions.

The Northwest Science Expo System is the source of Team Oregon, these are the students chosen to represent Oregon at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair each year. The system is comprised of 7 regional fairs and the state fair, the Intel Northwest Science Expo. NWSES is affiliated with the Intel ISEF, the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, which is a program of the Society for Science and the Public. The Center for Science Education at Portland State University administers the NWSES by providing leadership and support.

Students compete in 15 categories encompassing all the scientific disciplines, engineering, computer science and mathematics. Participation comes from all parts of Oregon.

The GBEF has established a fund that allows students to be reimbursed for the cost of creating a project.  For more information, contact your school’s science department.
