• STEM Fair Logo

    Sarasota County Schools strives to continue our long-standing commitment to stimulating student, teacher and public interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) with the annual county STEM Fair. The format of the 2021-2022 STEM fair will have both virtual and in-person elements.* Sarasota County public, charter, and private school students, grades 3-12, are encouraged to participate in school-based STEM Fairs. Each participating school enters their top projects into the Regional competition, where students in grades 6-12 may be chosen to advance to the State Science and Engineering Fair (SSEF) and/or the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).
