Nokia Bell Labs North Jersey Regional Science Fair: March 9 – 10, 2018 at Rutgers University, College Avenue Campus, New Brunswick, NJ.
The North Jersey Regional Science Fair (NJRSF) is a high school science competition where students, in grades 9 through 12, present a wide variety of projects from all areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The Fair is affiliated with the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and showcases the work of students from ten counties in central and northern New Jersey, namely, Bergen, Essex, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union, and Warren. In addition, students not covered by another ISEF affiliated fair may also enter the NJRSF.
There are two important dates for entering the Fair:
1. Project Certification Deadline: December 1, 2017
For approval of projects involving human subjects, vertebrate animals, potentially hazardous biological agents, and/or hazardous chemicals, activities, or devices.
2. Entry Deadline: February 5, 2018
Projects may be done individually or in a team of two students. Projects should be investigative in nature, posing and attempting to answer a question or problem, either through experimentation and design or in a theoretical sense. Student’s research plans must be reviewed and approved by an advisor, such as a teacher or parent. The advisor must also review the safety certification checklist with the student to guarantee the student has qualified supervision for potentially hazardous work.
The mission of the NJRSF is to support, encourage, and recognize student involvement in scientific research. Judges from academia and industry create a professional and nurturing environment for students considering a career in science and technology. The NJRSF is run by an all-volunteer committee of scientists and engineers.
Over 200 prizes, worth several thousand dollars, are awarded every year. Students also have the opportunity to participate in summer research programs and win academic scholarships at NJIT. The grand prize at the Fair is an all-expense paid trip for five students and their advisors to the prestigious Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). ISEF is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, where students from over 75 countries compete for approximately $4M in prizes.
