Northeastern Ohio Science and Engineering Fair (NEOSEF)

Big Idea

Established in 1953, the Northeastern Ohio Science and Engineering Fair (NEOSEF) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization, whose goal is to get young adults interested in science and engineering by participating in a science fair competition.  During the four-day event, approximately 600 students from over 100 schools in the area set up their science fair displays, discuss their projects with 350+ judges and compete for almost $40,000 in prizes.  One of the most rewarding aspects of NEOSEF is the opportunity for the students to discuss their research with professional scientists and engineers from the local area.

The science fair is a fair where students present their science project results in the form of a report, display board, and models that students have created. Science fairs include students in elementary, middle and high schools in science and technology activities. It is so important to motivate students with science. Because they can share their projects, ideas with their friends, parents and people who visit the fair. It also contributes to the social development of students.
