Announcing 2021 Science & Engineering Fair

Currently, we are hoping to hold the Maine State Middle School Science & Engineering Fair virtually May 15-29, 2021. All Maine students in grades 6-8 are allowed to participate.  The judging process may take a while since the event will be virtual and at this point there is no way of knowing how many students will participate. The top 10% of participants will be nominated to submit their research to the Broadcom MASTERS 2021 National Competition.

All forms will need to be submitted electronically.  The links to the forms are provided at right. Click here to view project submission guidelines.
