The Path to State Starts Locally

Participate

There are six Regional Science Fair organizations located across Massachusetts. Each regional science fair may send 40-50 of their top-scoring student projects to the statewide Science & Engineering Fair, provided that the students are certified by the Regional Fair Chairperson. The top-scoring projects and paperwork are promoted to the State Fair after the Regional Fairs.

High School Fair – Friday, May 5, 2023 (in-person)
Middle School Fair – Saturday, May 20, 2023 (in-person)
