Idaho Science & Engineering Fairs

Idaho Science & Engineering FairsEach spring, the Idaho STEM Action Center and its partners proudly host three regional high school science and engineering fairs for students across Idaho. These fairs offer students the opportunity to engage in original STEM research projects aligned with their interests. Students present their findings at the Northern, Western, or Eastern Idaho Science and Engineering Fair. Each fair offers students the opportunity to meet and learn with other motivated students in their area. Representative teams from each region are selected to attend and compete in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF). Grade Ranges: 9-12.
