The North Carolina International Science Challenge (NCISC) is a yearly, North Carolina science competition offered
by the Grassroots Science Museums Collaborative that chooses several excellent inquiry-based science projects.
Their student creators will display those projects at the Beijing Youth Science Creation Competition (BYSCC), held
during the third week of March 2008 in Beijing, China.
The students chosen through the NCISC process are the sole representatives of the United States of America. The
BYSCC features students from many counties: therefore this is an unparalleled opportunity for students to interact
with future scientists from around the globe.
