The Northeast Arkansas
Regional Science Fair (NEARSF) will be held on March 5, at Arkansas
State University in Centennial Hall, located inside the Reng Student
Services Center/Student Union, 101 N. Caraway Road,
Jonesboro. Individual students and teams in grades 7-12 will be eligible
to participate in the science fair, which gives recognition for
outstanding science fair projects in various categories of science,
math, and engineering.
The top two winners of the entire science fair and their sponsoring
teachers will be eligible to compete at the Intel International Science
and Engineering Fair 2010 in San Jose, Ca., May 9-14.
Travel, housing, and registration expenses for the two students and
their sponsoring teachers attending the Intel ISEF will be paid for by
the NEARSF, which is supported by the College of Sciences and
Mathematics at Arkansas State University, and private monetary donations
provided by business, charitable organizations, and members of the
northeast Arkansas Community.
On March 5, students will be able to set up their science fair projects
from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. The check-in table for student projects will
be outside Centennial Hall, and exhibiting information regarding various
academic programs at Arkansas State will be available in Centennial
Hall. There will also be representatives from various departments and
programs at ASU available on Friday for students, parents, and others to
gather information about the university.
Exhibits will be closed to the public that afternoon from noon until
5:30 p.m. while judging takes place. The exhibits will reopen to the
public and students from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m., when the award ceremony
will begin in the Student Union auditorium. Dr. John Pratte, department
chair and professor of physics, will officiate in the presentation of
awards, as well as other presenters.
