Teacher's Page

Dear Educator,

Thank-you for all of your efforts in helping your students to more fully appreciate and understand all aspects of the sciences, math and engineering.  When it comes down to it, you have been entrusted to help shape and mold the future of your students, our country and our world.  This truly is an awesome responsibility.  Remember that all of our famous scientists and engineers were once students themselves who were probably inspired and certainly encouraged by their teachers.

We believe that science fairs are an important means of teaching students about science or engineering through hands-on experiences.  That is why we are here to help you prepare your students to undertake science projects and to help you to possibly host a science fair at your school.

Important note to teachers:  All NEOSEF applications will need to be uploaded to our online registration page at We are using only online registration this year; paper applications will no longer be accepted.

For help navigating the online registration site, please review the videos linked on the NEOSEF home page. In addition, you may request in person support at your school. Please contact Jim Bader at to schedule an appointment.
