Science Fair

Every Spring, Southern Arizona celebrates young scientists in grades pre-kindergarten through high school through a week-long science and engineering fair that fills the main hall of the Tucson Convention Center. This school year, SARSEF will keep the tradition alive through a virtual event, ensuring that all communities can participate in science and engineering educational opportunities safely. This past school year, the SARSEF Fair showcased the work of over 7,000 students.

Important dates for 2024:

  • Jan 26th: All projects & completed notebooks are due to your classroom teacher
  • Jan 26th-Jan 30th: Sunrise Drive Science Fair Judging
  • Feb 23rd: Sunrise SARSEF Coordinator will be submitting qualified projects
  • Mar 2nd-6th: SARSEF Virtual Exhibit Opens
  • Mar 8th-9th: SARSEF Main Event! Winners notified and awards ceremonies

Students must use their school email account to create a Google Slides presentation for their science fair project and share it with their teacher when completed. Students are responsible for making sure that they have completed their Science Fair investigations and notebooks by January 26th. Children will be responsible for completing each step of the science investigation at home.
