The three-day event displays science project exhibits prepared by aspiring scientists and engineers in grades six through 12. Nearly 900 finalists display projects illustrating their research in competition for awards. The main objectives of SSEF are to recognize scientific talent in young people, introduce students to organized research, provide teachers a forum for the exchange of ideas, and focus attention on science, mathematics and engineering, thus stimulating student, teacher and public interest.
During the event, students have the opportunity to share their ideas with one another, increase personal development in scientific and technological areas, gain self-confidence in problem-solving skills, and participate in educational field trips and tours of local areas of interest.
