Sponsors of Arizona Science & Engineering Fairs


What are science and engineering fairs? 
They are an organized exhibition of work done which follows specific rules and guidelines.  The students compete through their exhibits and demonstrations of projects to the judges and public.  The exhibit represents a chosen category: Biology, Chemistry, Environment, Mathematics, Engineering, and Physical Science.

Local classroom and school fairs are the first step in the pathway.  Top 3 exhibits may wish to participate in other fairs.  Consider each fair a challenge to improve your project under your teacher's supervision. 

The following are web site contacts for the regional Science Fairs in Arizona.  These fairs award cash and trophies to many winners, we are also pleased to provide mentoring &/or advice regarding projects involving Biomedical Research.
