Idaho Science & Engineering Fairs

Each spring, the Idaho STEM Action Center and its partners proudly host three regional science and engineering fairs for high school students across Idaho. These fairs offer students the opportunity to engage in original STEM research projects aligned with their interests. Participation in STEM research meets many of the Idaho State Science Standards, as well as Math and ELA standards.
