As program of The Ohio Academy of Science, the Buckeye Science & Engineering Fair (BSEF) provides all Ohio's students in grades 9-12 with an opportunity to qualify for the International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF). The ISEF is the largest and most prestigious science fair in the world. Each year over 1,700 students from more than 70 countries, regions, and territories around the world gather to compete for nearly $5,000,000 in awards and scholarships. For information please visit Intel ISEF.
Students will need to qualify for the BSEF through their District Science Days (see map). Each District will be allocated a certain number of students (grades 9-12 only) that can qualify for BSEF. These qualifying students will then be able to compete at the BSEF for the opportunity to advance to the ISEF.
Thank you to our sponsors!
