Welcome to the 2016 Western Regional Science Fair!

February 6, 2016 - University of Minnesota Crookston - Bede Ballroom

Science and Engineering Fairs offer an exceptional opportunity to enrich school programs at both the elementary and secondary level through encouraging independent project work, developing displays, having work judged, sharing similar interests with other students, competing for awards and receiving local, national and even international recognition. Science and Engineering Fair work provides experiences and motivation that are reflected in both personal and classroom development.
