Schedule of Events

Judging ProcessWords cannot express the gratitude we all feel towards our volunteer judges. Taking a few hours out of your day to help encourage and mentor our young researchers will impact their lives more than you know!  Our students appreciate your candor and insight on how to help them succeed in the future with their research projects. Visit our Judges page to learn more!

Sponsoring the NWISEF is a great way to give back directly to some incredible young researchers in our area.  With your support, we are able to provide them with an experience they will carry with them for the rest of their lives!  Please visit our Sponsor page to find out how you too can contribute! 

We welcome ArcelorMittal USA as a Platinum Title Sponsor of the 2016 NWISEF!!

A huge thank you to all of our 2016 sponsors!
