Categories for projects include Biochemistry, Medicine and Health Sciences; Behavioral and Social Science; Botany; Earth and Space Science; Engineering; Environmental Science; Mathematics and Computer Science; Physical Science; and Team Projects.

The top projects from Northwestern’s Regional Fair will go on to the Oklahoma State Science & Engineering Fair held March 25-27 at East Central University (ECU) in Ada. The very best projects from ECU will go on to the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair May 9-14 in San Jose, Calif.
