Students (Grades PreK-12)


Welcome students!

If you are in Pre-K, Kindergarten or Grades 1-5, you are our future. We are counting on you!

We need you to be the ones who are curious and who think about how the world works.

When you grow up, you may become one of the important people who help solve problems that we do not even know exist yet!

You may help create medicines that help or cure sick people. You may discover a way to save energy, and make the world a safer place. You may create a product that makes people’s jobs easier.

So — right now, consider yourself a scientist!

Get ready to tackle your very important research project. Just follow the steps found on this website — and if you need help, just ask! Your teachers (or parents) will help, because they want you to succeed.

And WE want you to succeed. We look forward to seeing you (and your project) in March!

We think you are our most creative bunch.

So, let’s get started in launching your science adventure. You are on your way to becoming our world’s next innovators, and the inventors who tackle big problems and come up with new (and fun) ideas.

Just follow the steps to doing a great research project, and know that you are on your way to being able to call yourself a world-class scientist or engineer!


sarsef-can-be-funHigh school students, we know how busy your lives are right now. That is why we are so impressed that you are considering the best way to enhance the prospects for your future by conducting active research.

By entering a project at the SARSEF Science and Engineering Fair, you are increasing your possibility for success, now and in the years to come.

Who knows — you may also be changing the lives of others by discovering a cure for a disease, helping us better understand human behavior, or inventing something that will slow global warming.

We are counting on you.

And we want to help.

Just follow the rules and the steps to begin.
