Expo Schedule:   The 2022 Expo is planned for Thur, Mar 17, 2022, with a snow date of Friday, March 18.

The expected schedule of events for the day is as follows:
8:30 – 9:00 Student registration and project set-up
9:00 – 9:30 Project pre-inspection by SRC
9:00 – 9:30 Judges briefing
9:30 – 12:15 Judging of Projects
12:30 – 1:15 Lunch
1:15 – 2:00 Speakers
2:00 – 2:30 Award ceremony
2:30 – 3:00 Remove projects and clean up

A teacher should:

  1. Encourage students to get involved in STEM projects (Science research, Technology projects, Engineering projects, Math investigations, etc.)  These can be options for a required class project, part of an independent study, or a club project.
  2. Assist students with ways to find research projects or topics.
  3. Review with students the rules and regulations and/or show them how to find them on the website.
  4. Encourage students to do the preparation, planning, and research or investigation themselves.  Those who assume responsibility do better.
  5. To be linked to the students in your school, you may register with the Expo by providing your name, email, school name and city/town.  Send the info in an  email to rdmrotier@comcast.net.  Your info will be entered into a data-base so your students can then identify you when they register their projects.

Closer to the Expo, a teacher could:

  1. Remind students to submit paperwork and payments on time as part of their application to participate.
  2. Remind students to do on-line registration on time.  It should be done as soon as their research plan is finished.
  3. Ask students if they want to send in all their projects individually, or send them all in together (if a class project, it might be good to send them in all together).
  4. If desired, submit together all materials from their classes along with those from other teachers who are also participating from their school.  This can be helpful, but not a requirement.
  5. Send to:  NHSEE, PO Box 5202, Manchester, NH  03108-5202, or electronically to nhseesrc@gmail.com.  Checks must still be snail-mailed.  Checks should be made out to NH Science & Engineering Exposition.

Visitors

1. If you want to bring visitors to the Expo, we must know in advance because we are very limited for time and space. To register visitors, please go to CONTACT US and select the category “Visitors.” Please include in the contact message how many visitors you would like to bring, and whether they are students or adults. You may quickly get to the CONTACT US page by clicking HERE.

2. Visitors can view the exhibits and talk to students while they are setting up (until judging starts), or again after judging is completed (approx 1:00 PM).

3. They could view the exhibits, but not talk to students, during the judging time between 10:00 and 1:00, but must be accompanied by an Expo official.

4. If they want a lunch, it may cost about $8.00  to $10.00. At this time, we are not sure what the price will be.
