NC Science Fair Foundation

The North Carolina Science Fair Foundation (NCSFF) is a not-for-profit educational organization whose purpose is to increase the awareness of, exposure to, and participation in inquiry-based science learning. NCSFF promotes science and engineering research by elementary, middle, and high school students and partners with teachers to integrate scientific research into the classroom. NCSFF organizes science and engineering fairs to showcase and celebrate student research and learning.
NCSFF will be a recognized leader for integrating student research into science and engineering education at the elementary and secondary level. The NCSFF community will include students, educators, parents, researchers, business, and government whose future depends upon science and technology. Through the efforts of NCSFF, more youth of our state will become scientifically literate citizens and contribute to society as science and engineering leaders.
