NARSEF is a scientific competition for students in grades five through twelve.

The North Alabama region includes the following counties: Colbert, Cullman, Fayette, Franklin, Jackson, Lamar, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marion, Marshall, and Morgan Counties.

NARSEF is dedicated to promoting scientific exploration in today’s youth. The independent research in creating a science project stimulates interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
