Driving Science Forward: The 68th Annual Alaska Science Fair is Almost Here!

Calling all future scientists and engineers! With project registration closed, we are thrilled to announce that nearly 200 talented students have signed up to showcase their nearly 150 exciting projects at the 68th Annual Alaska Science and Engineering Fair. We can’t wait to see what innovative ideas and solutions you have come up with, as you explore the world of science and engineering.

This year’s fair theme is “Driving Science with Technology & Innovation,” which highlights the importance of utilizing technology to push the boundaries of science and engineering. With categories ranging from biology to physics, from environmental science to computer science, there is something for every participant to demonstrate their passion and creativity. You’ll have the chance to present your projects to judges and receive feedback, and meet fellow students who share your enthusiasm for science and engineering. So get ready to be inspired, to learn, and to make new connections at the fair.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Volunteering Opportunities

Become a Committee Member: The annual science fair event takes months of preparation and organization from our committee members. There are committees in charge of catering, fundraising, judging, awards and many more, and each committee takes several people to really make the fair happen every year, and we are always looking for more people to help make the fair a success. If you are interested in joining a committee, please email the fair director for more info: director@alaskasciencefair.org

 Judging Projects: Every year we have hundreds of projects to judge, and only a day to judge them all. We always need volunteers to come and judge projects on the day of the fair. If you are interested in being a judge, please email our judging committee for more info: judging@alaskasciencefair.org 

Setup, Check-in, & Teardown: On the day of the fair, it can take an army of volunteers to get all the tables & chairs set up, labels taped down, and students checked in before the fair can really get started, as well as tearing it all down once the fair is completed. If setting up tables and helping students get their paperwork is more your speed, please email our volunteer committee for more info: volunteers@alaskasciencefair.org
