Welcome to the online registration and management system for the NCSSM Science Fair - Region 3b of the NC Science and Engineering Fair - this is the qualifying fair for NCSSM students who hope to compete at the NC Science and Engineering Fair and the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). Using the links on this site, you can register either as a student Participant or as a Judge.
Since 2015, we have been an ISEF-affiliated fair. We have been approved to send TWO projects directly to ISEF 2020. Projects and posters must comply with ISEF rules. See 'Useful Links' for ISEF guidelines and more detailed information about the NC Science and Engineering Fair. There is no cost to participate, but students must complete all required ISEF paperwork in order to register.
Note - Region 3b is for students where NCSSM is their 'school of record' (the school they will graduate from). Students who have partners whose school of record is in another science fair region, must seek permission from the Fair Director to compete outside of their Region. For a list of Regional Fairs see 'Useful Links'.
Note - NCSSM students with a level 2 or 3 for Academic Dishonesty, are not allowed to advance to the State and/or National Levels

The Region 3B NCSEF would like to thank the following companies and organizations for their tireless support.
With their commitment, students have an opportunity to share ideas, showcase cutting-edge projects,
and compete annually for awards and scholarships.
