About the Northern MN Regional Science Fair

The Northern Minnesota Regional Science Fair is held at Bemidji State University in late February each year.  Approximately 50 to 100 students from our 18 county region (Aitkin, Beltrami, Benton Cass, Clearwater, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Kittson, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Marshall, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pennington, Red Lake, Roseau, and Wadena) compete, and about 10 students with poster presentations and 2 with research papers are selected to advance to the State Science Fair. Because our fair is affiliated with the International Science and Engineering Fair, the forms required for our fair are the same as those used for the International Science Fair, along with a cover sheet. The deadline for receipt of Science Fair forms is February 12, 2021. This deadline is needed to allow the program to be written, and the projects reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee.

Minnesota State Science Fair

The Minnesota State Science Fair brings together the top science fair students from the 7 regions within the state.  Students may present a poster or submit their research paper and give an oral presentation of their written paper, again, expanding their experience.

International Science & Engineering Fair

The ISEF, the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, annually provides a forum for more than 1,500 high school students from over 40 countries to showcase their independent research.  High school student projects from each region advance directly, as well as those selected to advance from the state competition.  Participants in the ISEF meet many other students with new ideas and similar interests.  They are exposed to a wonderful array of new experiences with tours, presentations and other fun activities.
