2016-17 Idaho Science & Engineering Fairs

About Our Regional Fairs

In February and March, 2017, the Idaho STEM Action Center and its partners proudly hosted Idaho’s first regional high school science and engineering fairs. The winners of these three fairs will represent Idaho during the 2017 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), one of the premier international student science and engineering competitions. Runners-up from each fair will attend as observers to bring back new knowledge to help their peers build better projects for the next fair (seniors were ineligible). All travel expenses for Idaho teams are covered by the STEM Action Center.
