NEFRSEF has Five Grand Award Winners 2021 Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair
Five Northeast Florida students were named Grand Award Winners in the 2021 Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (Regeneron ISEF), the world’s largest global high school competition. Historically held in person, 2021 marks the first time in its more than 70-year history that the competition took place virtually. Although the COVID pandemic posed challenges to students around the world, Northeast Florida students found ways to design and conduct novel and robust science projects.

The Grand Awards Ceremony was held on the morning of May 21st, after two weeks of rigorous judging. In total, more than $5 million was awarded to the finalists, who were evaluated based on their project's creativity, innovation and level of scientific inquiry. Over 4 million students conduct science projects worldwide each year, and the best projects are presented at ISEF. This year's competition featured over 1,800 young scientists representing 49 states and 64 countries across the world.
