2021 Virtual ND State Science & Engineering Fair
Student News and Awards
The 2021 North Dakota State Science & Engineering Fair, scheduled for March 26,  will be held virtually this year.  The 2021 Regeneron ISEF will also be virtual this year, with plans to return to in-person as soon as possible.

The 2020 North Dakota State Science & Engineering Fair was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Some regions in the state held an in-person regional fair, while others transitioned to remote or had to cancel.  The Virtual Regeneron ISEF 2020 focused on sharing of ideas and information. Participating students went through the SRC process, listened to top scientists, industry leaders and policy makers, and connected with each other.
