The 79th Annual MN Academy of Science State Science & Engneering Fair is happening in 2016!

The Minnesota State Science & Engineering Fair (MSSEF) is an annual competition that showcases Minnesota’s best and brightest students in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Since 1938, MSSEF has been the pinnacle of project-based STEM education in Minnesota.

MSSEF is the culmination of Regional Science Fairs that occur throughout the state. From approximately 2,500 Regional participants, 500 students in grades 6-12 are selected to advance and present their research at MSSEF. Students compete for awards totaling $25,000 sponsored by 40 government agencies, corporations, and professional scientific societies.

More than just a competition, MSSEF introduces students to new ideas, inspires them to research topics of personal interest, and encourages them to network with professional scientists and their peers. Many former students who participated in MSSEF now hold advanced degrees and are pursuing successful careers in STEM fields.

By presenting students with the opportunity to compete at MSSEF, the Minnesota Academy of Science seeks to foster student interest in STEM fields and encourage excellence in science, technology, engineering and math.
