Welcome to the Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair!
What is the Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair?
The Buckeye Science & Engineering Fair (BSEF) will be an online event for 2022.
To provide all students in Ohio with an opportunity to qualify for Intel ISEF, The Ohio Academy of Science will hold the Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair (BSEF). The Ohio Academy of Science is able to provide the Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair because of the generous support it receives from CAS (host) and AEP Foundation.
Currently, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (or Intel ISEF) is one of the largest and most prestigious science fairs in the world for pre-college students. Each year over more than 1,700 students from over 70 countries, regions, and territories around the world, will compete for $5 million in awards and scholarships.
