6 LCPS Students Participate in International Science Fair

 

Six Loudoun County Public Schools students took part in the Regeneron International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) from May 7 through 13 in Atlanta.

The ISEF is the most prestigious science fair for high school students in the country. To compete at ISEF, a high school student must first win the honor through participation at a Society for Science-affiliated fair. (The LCPS students qualified through the Loudoun Regional Science and Engineering Fair.)
