2022 NC Science and Engineering Fair Annoucement

The NC Science & Engineering Fair will be held in 2022. The board and planning committee are looking at face-to-face and virtual options and have not yet made a final decision on the format of the regional and state fairs. It is expected that the 2022 regional and state fairs, regardless of format, will make use of templates (i.e., presentation and quad chart) similar to those used in last year’s virtual fair. If you are unfamiliar with them, they can be found in the 2021 Virtual Science Fair Additional Forms section at the end of this page.

Dates:

  • Southeast Regional (Region 2) NC Science and Engineering Fair:
    • In Person:  February 12, 2022.
    • If it is virtual, it may be held on weekdays the previous or next week (TBD.)
  • NCSEF State level fair: March 25-26, 2022.
  • Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8-13. It is being planned as a hybrid fair.

Curious By Nature - 2021 NC Science Fair Documentary

"With the help of filmmaker Alicia Carter, 'Curious by Nature' takes us on the journey of four students as they compete in the 2021 North Carolina State Science and Engineering Fair during COVID-19. Along the way, we experience firsthand the power of today’s youth to drive meaningful change for the planet and to uplift communities through their curiosity for change. Watch to get inspired."


2021 Virtual Science Fair Additional Forms

To protect the health and safety of our students, the NC Science and Engineering Fair is going virtual!  Students will create a Presentation and Quad Chart to share their project.  More details on this year's virtual science and engineering fair can be found in the 2021 Frequently Asked Questions.
