Central New York Science & Engineering Fair
We’re gearing up for the 2017 Central New York Science & Engineering Fair, our 38th annual, which is scheduled for March 26 in SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College campus. The fair is open to students in grades four through 12, comprising a junior level for fourth- through eighth-graders and a senior level for students in grades nine through 12.
In 2016, CNYSEF expanded its footprint from the Canadian border to the Pennsylvania border, doubling the number of counties that can send students to the fair. Students in these counties are eligible to enter the science fair: Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Jefferson, Madison, Onondaga, Oswego, Tioga, and Tompkins.
Nearly 250 students participated last year, vying for more and $200,000 in cash and scholarship prizes. In addition, the top three senior-level winners earn an all-expenses-paid trip to the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair. The 2017 Intel ISEF will be held May 14 to 19, 2017, in Los Angeles.
We are seeking judges and volunteers! Please sign up here.
The fair is organized by the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology, and supported by Lockheed Martin, SRC Inc., Saab Defense and Security, NASA NYS Space Grant, and the Technology Alliance of Central New York.
