MS Fair Info

Notice: Registration Deadline has Passed!

LISEF is happy to announce that we WILL be running the Middle School fair on March 5, 2024 at Crest Hollow Country Club. The rules and guidelines will be updated on this page by October 13, 2023. Registration is expected to open on November 15, 2023.


The Society for Science and the Public (SSP) has partnered with Thermo Fisher to launch the Thermo Fisher Scientific Junior Innovation Challenge (JIC). This program is open to students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Under the guidance of their teachers, students perform an investigation. The results of the investigation are presented at the regional LISEF – SSP Thermo Fisher Scientific Junior Innovation Challenge. The projects receiving a first place award are eligible to apply for national Thermo Fisher JIC competition. Top 10% nominations for each regional fair are based on total number of participating students and determine the number of first place projects. Please contact with questions regarding the LISEF-Thermo Fisher Scientific Junior Innovation Challenge.
