National American Indian Virtual Science & Engineering Fair
AISES is hosting its fourth virtual science and engineering fair! The National American Indian Virtual Science and Engineering Fair (NAIVSEF) is a Society for Science and the Public (SSP) affiliated science fair and as such is part of the larger SSP fair network. The NAIVSEF differs from other SSP-affiliated fairs in that it is a “Virtual Science Fair”. Unlike live fairs, virtual fairs do not require travel as the fair and judging are conducted online and via teleconference calls. Participants submit their projects as videos and slideshows online.
Students from 5th-12th grade can participate in the NAIVSEF. There are two categories for entrants, Senior Division (grades 9-12) and Junior Division (grades 5-8). AISES awards cash prizes to the winners of each division.
Per Intel ISEF rules, only high school students (grades 9-12) may go on to participate in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF). AISES pays the travel and registration fees for the Senior Division Grand Award winners and their sponsors to attend the Intel ISEF in Los Angeles, California.
Each division, Senior and Junior, has its own timeline.
NAIVSEF projects may be submitted by individual students or teams of up to three students. Students must be an AISES Pre-College member to participate.
