A great way to engage students and provide an avenue to display their talents in experimental methodologies, engineering design and testing and other scientific aspects of their projects. The goal of science fairs is to stimulate an interest in Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering (STEM) and provide an extraordinary learning experience for our youth with the long-term goal of producing scientists, engineers, mathematicians and computer scientists. The local science fairs have a long history of success in these endeavors.
