Extend an opportunity for a student to observe science, engineering, technology and innovation practices in real business settings through INNOVATION IN ACTION.
The Gwinnett County Regional Science, Engineering + Innovation Fair is an annual tradition that has been in place for over 39 years. Gwinnett County recognizes the urgent need for our nation to produce science-literate citizens and skilled, knowledgeable engineers and researchers to meet the needs of our nation and to compete in a global economy.
We’ve seen firsthand how successful students can be when challenged to inquire, design, and investigate scientific and engineering concepts through experimentation. Participation in science fairs helps students to improve their problem-solving and communication skills, while inspiring them to consider careers in science and engineering.
The 2017 Fair will be the ninth year where the event had highlighted career opportunities that await our students in the fields of science and engineering. It is our goal to heighten awareness of opportunities in research and industry and identify for them avenues that can lead them to an exciting position in the field of science.
Our theme – “Ask WHY” gives students an opportunity to explore their curiosities and encourage our next generation work force to continuously look for answers.
Students who are awarded 1st place in their local school science fair are eligible to participate in the Gwinnett Regional Science, Engineering + Innovation Fair. From there, first place high and middle school winners from the Regional Fair will advance and be eligible to participate in the Georgia State Science & Engineering Fair held at UGA in Athens, GA. In addition, three select projects will directly advance to the prestigious Intel® International Science Fair in Los Angeles, CA May 14-19, 2017.
