This year we are proud to announce the awards received by our two 2023 Mercer Science and Engineering Fair (MSEF) Grand Prize winners, Naveen Enock and Nicholas Hagedorn, at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). MSEF occurs in March and it is open to all students in the Mercer County, NJ area in grades 7-12. The grand prize winners of the Senior Division move on to ISEF in May.
Naveen, who attends West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South, received the Central Intelligence Agency’s First Award for $1000. His project was Autonomous Soccer Robot.
Registration for the 2024 MSEF will open this fall but you can start your project now. You may use the 2023 International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) forms if you plan on starting experimentation now.
We would like to congratulate all the participants of this year's Mercer Science and Engineering Fair and recognize the winners at this year's event. The PDF file contains the complete list.
