Northwestern played host to Northwest Oklahoma Regional Science Fair Feb. 28

March 12, 2020

Students from six different schools earned top awards during the Northwest Oklahoma Regional Science Fair held at Northwestern Oklahoma State University recently.

Since 1957, Northwestern has played host to this science fair. This program has evolved over the years to become one of outreach, service learning, and has served as a springboard for aspiring students. The fair services the northwest counties of Oklahoma and is a feeder fair for the Oklahoma State Science & Engineering Fair (OSSEF) held March 26-28 in Stillwater at Oklahoma State University (OSU). At the regional fair, judges have the capability of advancing a project to the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Anaheim, California.
