Students:

Completing a Science or STEM project is a lot of hard work.  A good project can take months to see from beginning through completion.  It is a way to prove that you are capable of doing hard things.  You are just as capable of doing good science as any adult.  You are capable of making new and real discoveries, or of inventing new solutions for industry.  Set yourself apart from the rest of your peers!

Some of our winners from 2017-2018.  Trish Luu, Caleb Gray, Jonny Labarron (Grand Champion), Avery Hall.

Parents:

The Science And STEM Fair is a unique opportunity for your child to get a head start over their peers and set themselves apart.  In a few years they will be applying for college and ultimately for careers.  Having the distinction of being a science fair winner on their resume is powerful.  Not to mention the savings to your pocketbook if they win a scholarship!

Teachers And Administrators:

Participation in the Science And STEM Fair is one of the most satisfying things that you will ever do.  Shepherding a student from the beginning of an idea, through the creation of a well thought out project, through the collection of data, through interpretation of that data, through making new discoveries, and finally on to getting Statewide and National attention for their discoveries is something that you will never forget.  It is why you went into teaching.

These kiddos are smart!  They just need a bit of guidance.  The Science And STEM Fair is our opportunity as educators to help our amazing students stand out, and get noticed.  It is also one of our greatest opportunities to help them get into college, and even get that college paid for.
