2019 Sponsorship Package

 for the 64th Annual SARSEF Science, Research and Engineering Fair

Invest in the Next Generation of Critical Thinkers and Problem Solvers

SARSEF Fair Week is the culminating event for all SARSEF Programs.  The Fair provides opportunities for K-12 youth throughout Southern Arizona to conduct research requiring critical thinking and problem-solving. 

The year leading up to the SARSEF Fair involves 95,000 youth with the top 2,000 projects advancing to the weeklong celebration of their achievements at the Tucson Convention Center.

The Fair is important in transforming lives and opportunities to achieve in areas many youths did not think possible.  It is because of community investment from individuals, corporations, and foundations, that SARSEF can award over $100,000.00 in awards and scholarships. In addition, Fair Week is made possible with volunteers who contribute over 11,000 hours of their time.

Fair Week features the following opportunities:

  • Over 100 exhibitors from our community organizations and businesses at Future Innovators Night. Future Innovators Night features interactive science and engineering activities, experiments, technology and community information.
  • Networking and volunteer opportunities.
  • Support the future by helping develop a pipeline of talent.
