Explore Your Universe


The 63rd Annual Alaska Science and Engineering Fair (ASEF), “Explore Your Universe”, will take place March 23 – 25, 2018 in Anchorage.  We invite all Grade K-12 students throughout Alaska to enter a science, engineering, computer science, or mathematics project in the fair. It is not necessary to participate in a local school fair before entering ASEF.

ASEF is an Intel-affiliated fair. High school students compete for local and national awards and prizes, including the top award: A trip to the International Science and Engineering Fair. Middle school students are eligible for local and national prizes, and elementary students are eligible for local awards and prizes.
