Current events and national news suggest that the success of our nation lies in the hands of our future scientists and engineers. Students who are in high school today are the leaders of tomorrow and they will be challenged to be more innovative, creative, and committed to solving future international problems. Research indicates that today’s students need to be better prepared to problem-solve, conduct research, analyze data, and communicate well developed thoughts about sophisticated topics. The Science & Engineering Fair is a model of this type of preparation and Fair participants have a great opportunity to demonstrate these skills.
Ready to get started? The best way to start is to read and understand the Rules & Guidelines carefully, and then pick a project category that interests you. Once you’ve done these things you are ready to start on your project. Be sure to check out the Student Guide: How to Do a Science Fair Project and Intel's Student Handbook which include step-by-step instructions for your project as well as helpful tips.
