We would like to extend an invitation to all 6th – 12th grade students in St. Johns County, including public, home, charter, and private schools, to participate in the 2022-2023 Secondary STEM Fair.
The St. Johns County Secondary STEM Fair began in 1978 as the River Region East Science Fair. This competition is a qualifying contest for projects to advance to the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair.
Project categories include Medicine and Health Sciences, Physical Sciences, Engineering, Intelligent Machines and Mathematics, Plant Sciences, Chemistry, Behavioral Sciences, and Environmental Sciences, amongst others. We reserve the right to combine categories.
At our regional fair, placement awards (1st, 2nd, 3rd place and Honorable Mention) are presented by category, when appropriate. Placement for a top award does not guarantee that a student qualifies to compete at the state level. The regional fair’s judging team and scientific review committee determine if a project meets the requirements for competition at the state level and we invite those students to participate in the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair. Many special awards are given, each using unique and specific award criteria.
The St. Johns County Secondary STEM Fair will be held at the First Coast Technical College, 2980 Collins Avenue, St. Augustine, FL on February 14, 2023.
Students invited to the fair will set up their projects on Monday, February 13, 2023 between 2:30pm and 5:00pm at First Coast Technical College. Judging will take place on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 and the award ceremony will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2023 beginning at 6:30pm.
The State Science and Engineering Fair will be held in Lakeland, Florida, from April 4-6, 2023.
