WaCSEF Science Fair
Science Fairs provide students with a way to investigate STEM technologies that they are interested in and provides students with opportunities to research, present their findings, and earn scholarships/awards for their future. A science fair can open doors to career opportunities, improve speaking and presentation skills, and increase a student’s scientific knowledge. The Waukesha Colleges Science and Engineering Fair (WacSEF) is a way for students to start in local fairs and progress up to regional and state fairs and is great preparation for the International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF).
The student or student team will choose their project from their choice of many disciplines such as physics, math, computer sciences, medicine/health, behavior/social science, biology, chemistry/biochemistry, environmental science, and engineering. The student or student team, with help, can tailor a project to their STEM talents and interests. WacSEF follows the ISEF procedures and rules established for grades 9 -12 and prepares students for competition as well as safe experimentation. The Badger State Science and Engineering fair (BSSEF) is at the state level in Wisconsin. Students will be able to continue to present at the BSSEF.
Wisconsin Science Education Foundation is announcing the eighth year of the Waukesha Colleges Science and Engineering Fair, WaCSEF. WaCSEF is a SE Wisconsin wide fair, open to any high school student that does not have a regional fair in their surrounding area.
