Finding science fair

Postby jrichied » Wed Jan 12, 2022 4:27 am

I teach a 10th grade STEM course in LA. How can I find a good science / engineering design fair that my students could participate in?

Hello Jrichied,

Welcome to Science Buddies!
Here's a link that has several links. One lets you search for science and engineering fairs that are affiliated with ISEF:

https://www.societyforscience.org/isef/ ... r-network/

Be sure to check out the other links on that page, including information on a conference for high school teachers.

Also, there are many excellent STEM activities and science fair projects here at Science Buddies.

Let us know if this helps and if you have more questions!

Does your school host a science fair? Holding a school science fair is often a first step, and many schools then send students on to county, regional, or state fairs. As MadelineB indicated, many advanced students go on to compete at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). It usually is a journey from a school or local fair to other fairs on the way to ISEF.

You can find many resources to help support setting up and running a science fair at school here: https://www.sciencebuddies.org/teacher- ... fair-tools
