Get ready for 2023 NC Science & Engineering Fair

  The 2023 North Carolina Science and Engineering Fair is coming up on March 24-25 in Raleigh. After three years, the event returns to the campus of NC State University for the in-person event. Students in grades 3-12 from across North Carolina who have advanced from one of the 10 Regional Fairs will now compete for state honors. Independent student-led research expands their knowledge of a subject, bolsters excitement for discovery, and hones problem solving skills required in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics fields. Sharing their discoveries promotes the development of communication skills and allows students to become experts in their area of research. The goal is to stimulate innovation and creativity in exploring STEM disciplines that will help to encourage the future problem solvers of our nation. Judges and volunteers are needed - access this flyer to assist during the variety of planned activities. For more information and a detailed schedule of this year's event, please visit www.ncsef.org.
