About Science Fair

Science fair is a competion open to students with excellent Independent Research Projects that are selected from Honors Biology, Chemistry, and Physics to enter the Greater New Orleans Regional Science and Engineering Fair (GNOSEF) and the Lousiana Science and Engineering Fair (LSEF) . Students in 7th and 8th grade with approved projects are able to participate in the Junior Science Fair. Students meet during study hall and after school to prepare competitive displays for the Regional Fair held at UNO in February or March. A select number of students from GNOSEF and LSEF are invited to compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).

To be eligible to participate in GNOSEF, all participants' projects must be approved by Ms. Allison or Dr. Worthylake. In addition, entrants must fall into one of the two of the divisions: Junior Division (6-8 grade) or Senior Division (9-12 grade). Typically, the top three winners from each category are invited to compete at the state science fair (LSEF). A select number of students from GNOSEF and LSEF are invited to compete at ISEF .

During the 2015-16 school year, Mason Varuso and Tyler Libert were invited to attend both LSEF and ISEF.
