The annual Sacramento Regional Science &
Engineering Fair showcases students in the greater Sacramento region who
will become our future scientists, technology experts, engineers, and
mathematicians. This regional competition celebrates achievement by
middle and high school students, supported by devoted parents, teachers,
and other mentors.
Through the annual Fair competition, hundreds of the area’s best and
brightest students are challenged to go beyond their classroom studies.
They work independently or in teams to conduct research and tackle tough
questions in the fields of Computer Science, Environmental Science,
Medicine & Health, Chemistry, Biology, and a dozen other categories.
The Sacramento Regional Science & Engineering Fair consistently produces
winners who go on to compete and win in other state and national
competitions, including the prestigious Intel International Science &
Engineering Fair. But whether or not a student wins, every student is
celebrated and encouraged by the hundreds of attending parents,
teachers, mentors, sponsors, and the members of the public.
The 2013 Sacramento Regional Science & Engineering Fair will be held
in March 2013 at Rosemont High School in
Sacramento. Students will compete in junior (6th – 8th grade) and
senior (9th – 12th grade) divisions for awards and prizes in multiple
areas of study. Fair participants are drawn from public, private and
parochial schools in Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer, San Joaquin, Yolo,
Yuba, Sutter, Solano, and Amador counties.
All participants receive a commemorative
t-shirt, pin and certificate.
First, second, and third place prizes are
awarded for each category in the Senior Divisions.
First, second, third, fourth and fifth
prizes are awarded for each category in the Junior Division.
Top three grand prize winners advance to
an all-expenses-paid trip to the Intel International Science &
Engineering Fair in Phoenix, AZ, the week of May 12-17, 2013.
Top students in the Junior and Senior
Divisions will be selected to compete in the California State Science
Fair in Los Angeles in May 2013.
In addition, over 25 companies and
organizations present Special Awards.
