Teachers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math learned how to help their students succeed in science fairs through a free workshop Sept. 12 by the Greater New Orleans Science and Engineering Fair.

Teachers learned about the science fair process from start to finish: classroom level, school level, the Feb. 23-25 regional fair at UNO, the state fair and beyond. The workshop was hosted by Tulane University, University of New Orleans, Core Element, Society of Petroleum Engineers, American Petroleum Institute and the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation.

The regional science fair is open to any student nominated by their middle or high school in Orleans, Jefferson, St. Charles and Plaquemines parishes. The Junior Division is for grades six through eight, and the Senior Division is for grades nine through 12.

The regional science fair provides more than $60,000 in awards, prizes and grants. For information, visit gnosef.tulane.edu.
