Science Fair

North Museum Science & Engineering Fair

The NMSEF serves as Lancaster County’s only free, ISEF-affiliated science fair. Our fair is open to all middle and high school students in Lancaster County. In 2018, we hosted over 300 student projects from over 30 schools. 

Winners of the North Museum Science & Engineering Fair advance to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, the world’s largest international pre-college science competition.
