The 39th annual Central New York Science & Engineering Fair will take place on Sunday, March 25, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College campus. In 2017, nearly 250 students participated and competed for $195,000 in cash and scholarship prizes. In addition, three of the top senior-level winners – as selected by the judges – earned all-expenses-paid trips to the International Science & Engineering Fair, held May 14 to 19, 2017, in Los Angeles.

The 2018 science 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. Teams consist of one or two students. Students from the following counties are eligible to enter the science fair: Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Jefferson, Madison, Onondaga, Oswego, Tioga, and Tompkins.

The fair is organized by the MOST and supported by SRC Inc., Lockheed Martin, The Dorothy and Marshall M. Reisman Foundation, IEEE, Saab Defense and Security, Syracuse University Engineering & Computer Science, and the Technology Alliance of Central New York.
