When they said your kiddos’ Science Fair was going away, you stepped up and raised your hand. Or better yet, maybe someone raised your hand for you. Yep, been there! That’s how Science Fair Fun’s resources first started taking shape in 2014 and is now part of the nation-wide nonprofit that provides support to families and schools all around Science Fairs.
You can be the super hero of your school by bringing student-led, authentic learning all around Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) at your school through your fair. We can help you foster the next generation of innovators through your Science & Engineering Fair.
“If I hadn’t done science fairs, I probably wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing today.” –Rajen Sheth, Chrome Product Developer, Google
