ABAC prides itself on the many accomplishments of local students and is proud to showcase their scholastic work at the ABAC Regional Science and Engineering Fair. It provides an opportunity for students in grades six through twelve to exhibit the results of their scientific or mathematical thoughts and experiments. The ABAC Regional Fair hosts students from the surrounding counties of Ben Hill, Berrien, Brooks, Cook, Crisp, Grady, Irwin, Lanier, Lowndes, Thomas, Tift, Turner, and Worth.
REMINDERS TO TEACHERS, Parents, and Staff
Don’t forget that students must participate in a local or school fair before entering the ABAC Regional Fair. Each school should hold their own fair in order to determine which projects should advance. While the ABAC RSEF committee realizes not every student is a scientist, some projects from previous years did not meet the criteria expected at a regional level fair. ABAC RSEF judge’s decisions are final. Please note: GSEF rules allow a student to participate in only their designated regional fair and ninth grade students must compete in the senior division even if the project is a continuation project from earlier year.
Several forms must be filled out and signatures obtained BEFORE the student can begin their project. Please read over the forms to be sure of what needs to be completed before your students start their projects. Please read the ISEF Rules & Guidelines as it ensures that all eligible students have an equal opportunity at all Science and Engineering Fairs.
All projects require the completion of an ABAC RSEF Application and an official GSEF Abstract Form. Attached below are the RSEF Application Form and links to the official GSEF Abstract Forms.
