Your Guide to Fair Week 2021

Your Guide to Fair Week 2021

Can you believe it’s been a year since the last Fair? In some ways, it feels like it’s been a few years since you were all dropping display boards off at the TCC in preparation for the 2020 Fair. We at SARSEF will never forget how abruptly the Fair, (the country, and the world) had to change so quickly at this time one year ago.

Well, we’re back! And the Fair definitely looks different than it ever has, but we are thrilled as always to be here with you, celebrating the science and engineering research of thousands of PK-12 students in Southern Arizona. This post should have everything you need for this coming week. Good luck and have an amazing Fair Week 2021!

The SARSEF 2021 Fair is entirely virtual and will be held at
