We would like to congratulate the participants and winners of the 2015 Mercer Science and Engineering Fair. The 2015 fair results are now online. Photos are on our MSEF Facebook page. Our Broadcom Masters award winners should make sure they enter their project in the next phase of competition as soon as possible. We have had students move on to the next level but you have to enter your project to be chosen.
All applications should be completed at this point including uploading of the photographed or scanned versions of the forms for the Junior and Senior divisions. We need these for the signatures. Email email@example.com if you have issues. Note for those with Human Subjects projects:only upload the consent form template, not the individual consent forms you have from the participants. You keep those. They are not to be displayed with your project or given to us. They are only used if there is an issue that arises from your project.
There are new categories for the Senior Division for this year's fair. The Intel International Science and Engineering categories now number 20. Senior Division students need to check their appication to make sure the proper category is selected. Most remain the same but ones in computer science, environmental, and engineering have changed. Contact us if you have questions. If you are now creating an application then make sure you select the appropriate category.
Time to sign up of the science fair. You can create your online application before you start your project. The dates when you must have the project have been posted.
We are also offering precertification of projects at this time. Precertification must be done BEFORE experimentation starts.
The MSEF/ISEF forms for the 2015 Mercer Science and Engineering Fair are now available. The forms can be found at Blank Forms. These are for the Junior (grades 6-8) and Senior (grades 9-12) division students. Elementary (grades 4-5) division students only need to complete the online registration.
The dates for the 2015 fair have been posted. The ISEF forms have not been updated yet. Use the 2015 ISEF Forms if you need to get started before we have them posted. We look forward to seeing everyone at the fair.
Ohyoon Kwon was one of the 4th place winners in Cellular and Molecular Biology at this year's Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Fig. 1). Ohyoon was the Senior Division Grand Prize winner at the Mercer Science and Engineering Fair. She is a student at West Windsor-Plainsboro High. Her project is entitled Discovering The Regulation of Cell Adhesion Molecule L1 Expression By MeCP2 Using Rett...
We are always looking to improve the fair and many of you have provide helpful suggestions in the past. We can always use more and now you have a way to do that. Log in and add your feedback in the Feedback section of your user account. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you at next year's fair that will be better than ever.
This year's Senior Division Grand Prize winner is Ohyoon Kwon from West Windsor-Plainsboro High. Her project is entitled Discovering The Regulation of Cell Adhesion Molecule L1 Expression By MeCP2 Using Rett Syndrome Patient Derived Neural Stem Cell. Miss Kwon won an all expense paid trip to the 2014 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair to be held in Los Angles, CA, in May. She will be competing with over 1600 students from around the world.
We also had sixteen Junior Division winners that will get to compete in the Broadcom Masters competition. The top 50 winners will win a trip to Washington, D.C.
We had a great fair and look forward to seeing many of you next year. The full results will be posted online in a couple days along with photos. Elementary and Junior divsion winners that received an award but did not attend the award ceremony Tuesday may pick them up at Thursday. Please bring your check-out form or photo ID when you come to pick up your project. ALL PROJECTS LEFT AFTER 7pm WILL BE DISCARDED IMMEDIATELY. The area is used for another Rider event so we have to clear it. Do not call if you missed the deadline. We will not have anything to give you.
In case you have time, you might like to read my latest article, Science Fair Rules. Electronic Design is my day job when I am not working with everyone on the science fair.
Online registration is now closed. We look forward to seeing you at the fair. Please check the Project Display documentation and especially the Restricted Content section before you come to the fair. Improper displays must be corrected or they will be disqualified. Unregistered projects will not be allowed at the fair.

Table assignments for the Junior and Senior division have been made. Elementary division students receive their table number at the fair. The table number can now be found on the check in and check out forms. You can view them and write the number on the forms if you have already printed them out. They will also be available at the fair when you check in. You must check in before setting up your project.
