Science Fairs provide an opportunity for students, 3rd through 12th grades, who are interested in science and technology to pursue their personal areas of interest and to display their research as a presentation in a public competitive forum. The NC Science and Engineering Fair works to create enthusiasm in science and technology while encouraging project-based inquiry. This fair gives our students the chance to compete for college scholarships, awards, honors programs and other exciting prizes.
