New York City Science and Engineering Fair EXPO
Tuesday, March 6, 2007
Presented by the New York Academy of Sciences
The public is invited to view the science exhibits of more than 1,000 New York area high school students competing in the New York City Science and Engineering Fair!
NYCSEF is the New York City Department of Education's annual science and technology research competition, coordinated by the New York Academy of Sciences in partnership with Polytechnic University. Students in grades 9-12 attending schools within the five boroughs will compete.
More than 1,000 students from public and private high schools throughout the five boroughs will meet to display their scientific research projects or proposals in the EXPO that is open to the public on the evening of March 6.
The top 250 students selected to participate in the Finals will be announced at the EXPO, and will return the next day to compete in a closed session for awards totaling almost $2,000,000 in the form of cash, scholarships, and prizes, including a chance to represent NYC at the 2007 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).
More than 400 volunteer judges (researchers, engineers, medical professionals, faulty members, teachers, and other members of the scientific community) evaluate the research papers, presentation of the exhibits and the scientific or engineering processes applied by the students.
