Intel Northwest Science Expo Dates

For 2018 the Intel Northwest Science Expo will combine middle and high school once again. It will be Friday April 13, 2018, set-up will be available the evening before. It will be held in the new Viking Pavilion part of the Peter Stott Center. High school students must qualify for Intel NWSE by placing in the top third at their regional fair.  

Answers to common questions

All high school and special awards judges are expected for the whole day 8ish to ~3:15. If you selected Middle School AM or PM, it will show on your judge main menu. Hours for AM judges are 8:30am-12:30pm, PM judges are 11:30am-3:30pm. 

Parking is always a challenge at PSU, use Trimet if you can. Otherwise Parking structure 3 at 12th and Montgomery has the most daily spots, you do not have to stop at the kiosk, there are Payment machines to use. If you are a half day judge street parking may be the better option.

For middle school STUDENTS, session 1 judging in the morning is from 10:30am-noon, doors to the exhibit hall will open at 10:15am. For students in session 2 in the afternoon doors will open at 12:45pm, interviews are from 1-2:30pm. 

Public viewing is from 2:30-4:30pm directly followed by the middle school award ceremony.

High school award ceremony starts at 6:30pm

The physical address for the Peter Stott Center is 930 SW Hall, Portland 97201.
