Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair is going Virtual for 2020!
The Society for Science & the Public and Regeneron have announced the Virtual Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair, which will take place Monday, May 18 through Friday, May 22. It is free and open to the public. ISEF 2020 will have virtual rooms for each project category featuring videos about projects submitted by participating finalists. Virtual ISEF schedule can be viewed here.
The Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) is the international fair to which our 4 top GNOSEF senior division projects advance, providing an all-expense paid opportunity for 4 GNO area students and 2 teachers to attend. Due to the unique circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus this year, the event was cancelled and moved to a virtual platform, allowing for anyone with an interest in science and engineering to “go to ISEF”, albeit virtually. If you choose to register, our GNOSEF fair ID is USLA08. Keep an eye out for our 4 GNOSEF finalists listed with their project numbers below!
