The Georgia Science & Engineering Fair took place virtually this year. To participate at the fair, students in grades 6-12 must first qualify by advancing from a school-level fair to a regional fair, where they are then selected to compete at GSEF.
The Georgia Science & Engineering Fair the state's premier forum for students to showcase their original research, compete for awards, and interact with top-level professional scientists. The science fair system in Georgia serves not only to recognize students for their achievements, but also to prepare students to succeed and flourish in an increasingly complex and highly technical world by becoming problem solvers, critical thinkers, reflective learners, and more productive and influential members of their communities.
