Science Engineering Fair

The Northern Indiana Regional Science and Engineering Fair will take place Saturday (Feb. 27) at the Stepan Center at the University of Notre Dame. The event is open to the public at 1:30 p.m. and parking is available in the D lot east of the Stepan Center at the corner of Wilson and Stepan Drives.

The fair will feature some 275 science, engineering and mathematics projects by students in grades three through 12 from more than 50 public and private schools in St. Joseph, Elkhart, Fulton and Marshall counties.

More than 160 special awards will be presented to participants during the awards ceremony, which begins at 3:15 p.m.

Winners of the awards for the top two outstanding senior level projects (grades nine-12) will have an opportunity to compete in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in San Jose, Calif., in May. The designers of up to nine additional projects from grades three through 12 will be selected to compete at the Hoosier Science and Engineering Fair on March 27 in Indianapolis.
