To provide a safe, inclusive, juried science and engineering fair for local 6th-12th grade students

1. To increase local middle and high school aged children’s science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) literacy, communication skills, and innovative thinking abilities,
2. To give these students practice with the scientific method using real world problems of their own choosing, and
3. To provide the support for our local students to compete successfully at advanced STEM competitions
