N.O. Science and Engineering Fair Returns Feb. 10-13 to Tulane
NEW ORLEANS – More than 300 middle and high school students will show off the results of their scientific inquiry at the 64th annual Greater New Orleans Science and Engineering Fair February 10-13 at the Tulane University Lavin-Bernick Center.
Since 1956, GNOSEF has encouraged independent student research in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). The Fair is open to students nominated by their middle or high school within the designated parishes of Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard and Plaquemines.
More than $65,000 in cash/non-cash awards, prizes, grants and scholarships will be awarded to GNOSEF 2020 winners/teachers and schools. One prize is a trip for four students and two teachers to the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair happening May 10-15 in Anaheim, Calif. That event attracts nearly 1,800 students from 70 countries with more than $5 million in cash awards and prizes.
“This annual gathering of curious young students and dedicated STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) teachers serves as an educational platform for creating a brighter future for everyone in our community,” said Annette Oertling, Ph.D., the fair’s co-director. “As we have for the past 64 years, we are committed to ensuring that our student participants are highly prepared for the future as they pursue STEM degrees and, ultimately, successful STEM careers.”
GNOSEF is presented by the Greater New Orleans Science Fair Inc., H. Britton Sanderford, the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation, Entergy Corporation, Paul and Patty Habeeb Muehlemann and Tulane University in partnership with Core Element, Loyola University and Women for a Better Louisiana.
