Registration for the 2021 EWRSEF is open.
The 2021 EWRSEF will not be held in person due to COVID-19. Participants need to register and turn in the required forms, an abstract, and a pdf file with 5 to 8 slides instead of a poster. Participants will also need to record a short video explaining their project for review by judges. This can be on Flipgrid. Judges may want to ask questions of the students by phone during judging.
High school projects will be judged March 10 and 11. Middle school projects will be judged in early April.
We are looking forward to a time when the EWRSEF will be held in person again.
Thanks to the Society for Science and the Public for their generous grant supporting the efforts of the Eastern Washington Science and Engineering Fair to hold the fair during the COVID-19 pandemic.
