Students’ Innovative Science Fair Projects Recognized with Engineering Excellence Awards

Parker Recognizes Students’ Innovative Science Fair Projects with Engineering Excellence Awards - overhead view of the fair - Parker HannifinThe Northeastern Ohio Science and Engineering Fair (NEOSEF) is an annual regional science and engineering competition intended to engage interested students with hands-on learning projects. The event is coordinated solely by volunteers who are focused on inspiring young adults to pursue science and engineering education. Initiated in 1954, the competition is one of the longest-running science fairs in the United States.

 

Hundreds attend four-day event

During the four-day event, hundreds of students in grades 7-12 from more than 80 schools set up their science fair displays and discussed their projects with 260+ judges to compete for more than $20,000 in prizes. One of the most rewarding aspects of NEOSEF, according to the students, is the opportunity to discuss their research with professional scientists and engineers.

At the fair students compete in nine categories which are subdivided by grade levels. NEOSEF awards one 1st place, and multiple 2nd place, 3rd place and honorable mentions per subdivision. Students also compete for more than 300 specialized awards totaling more than $15,000, sponsored by local companies, societies and organizations.

 

 

 

 

Awards for top students

With support from the Parker Foundation, each year we award several “Excellence in Engineering” prizes to the top students in each grade level category who have outstanding projects correlating to Parker technologies. The winners are selected by a team of Parker engineers from several locations across Northeast Ohio and from multiple technologies and engineering backgrounds such as information technology, Industrial, Internet of Things, aerospace product management, and mechanical.
