SARSEF Week 2017

Want a glimpse at out future critical thinkers and problem solvers?

SARSEF 2017 will showcase over 1,900 top-level research projects from students across the seven counties of Southern Arizona. Come view the very best of science and engineering research from ages 5 to 18. SARSEF will award more than 800 prizes — including cash, science equipment, college scholarships or all-expense-paid trips to international student science fairs. See if you can spot the winners! Over the years, science fair winners have gone on to compete at national and international science-and-engineering events, and have become expert critical thinkers, talented scholars and world-class scientists themselves. Created in 1955, SARSEF began with 100 science projects, and grew into a competition for the southern half of Arizona that attracts members of the public, talented engineers and scientists, and members of the news media. Each year, it brings together educators, academic researchers, technology companies, parents and student scientists for a four-day celebration of science and scientific discovery. Last year, 95,000 students in Southern Arizona — from kindergarten to high school – designed research projects for their local competitions. Only the best of those projects were selected to advance to regional competition at the Southern Arizona Research, Science and Engineering Fair. Date: Join us on March 31st, 2017 – April 1st, 2017
