      Registration for the AISES

      National American Indian Virtual Science and Engineering Fair

      closes Friday February 14, 2014

      AISES Logo

      Spread the word, AISES is holding its first virtual science and engineering fair online!  The National American Indian Virtual Science and Engineering Fair (NAIVSEF) is a Society for Science and the Public (SSP) affiliated science fair and as such is part of the larger SSP fair network. The NAIVSEF differs from other SSP-affiliated fairs in that it is a "Virtual Science Fair" and is serving as a pilot to explore the feasibility of such a forum.  


      AISES permits students from 5th-12th grades to participate in its NAIVSEF event. There are two categories for entrants, high school (defined as grades 9-12) and middle school (defined as grades 5-8). This virtual science fair complies with SSP and Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) regulations and standards.  Per ISEF rules, only high school students (grades 9-12) may go on to participate in the ISEF. 


      NAIVSEF projects may be submitted by individual students or teams of up to three students.  Students must either be an AISES Pre-College member or a student attending an AISES Pre-College Affiliate School to participate.


      Registration:  Students must register for this fair online. The process is the same for high school and middle school students/teams. Registrations are considered complete when all forms and documents have been completed and uploaded. For time/date stamp considerations, the completion date/time is used to determine when the entry was received. This event is limited to 50 high school projects and 75 middle school projects.


      Click here to find more information such as the official "AISES NAIVSEF Policies, Procedures and Rules", the NAIVSEF timeline, NAIVSEF forms, and a link to our online registration platform.


      NAIVSEF Registration Fee:  Each project permitted to enter the science fair, after the initial review and SRC approval, must pay a registration fee.  The fee is $40.00 per project (not per student).
