Nearly 1800 high school scientists, innovators, and mathematicians representing more than 78 countries, regions and territories participated in this year’s Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Los Angles, California from May 14 – 19, 2017. Team NYC – comprised of 14 NYC high school students chosen from this year’s NYCSEF competitions – proudly represented our city and received specialty awards from the Air Force Research Laboratory on behalf of the United States Air Force and the American Geosciences Institute. Five projects also received grand awards in their respective categories – one Second Place, two Third Place and two Fourth Place Awards.
The New York City Science & Engineering Fair is an affiliate of the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF). As an affiliate, NYCSEF abides by ISEF’s rules & guidelines and participates in its fair every year. NYCSEF sponsors a team of the top-rated projects to represent our region (NYC) at ISEF. NYCSEF determines which projects will compete at ISEF based on several criteria including judge scores collected at the preliminary and finals rounds, ISEF nominations derived from judge caucus at finals, and NYCSEF’s scientific review committee’s assessment. Students whose projects are chosen to compete at ISEF receive an all-expenses-paid trip to ISEF in May.

Please note: Students can only compete in one ISEF-affiliated fair. NYC students’ regional fair is NYCSEF, participating in any other ISEF-affiliated fair is prohibited.
