Register for the Science Fair
The Alaska Science and Engineering Fair registration is open.
Registration Now Open! – Covid-19 Update 3
Registration is now open!!
All projects must be submitted by April 18th!
The plan is to then take the next week to judge all the projects with judging being completed by April 25th. We will then make a post here announcing award winners as well as an email being sent out to the teachers and students if they won an award.
We are still unsure of exactly what the virtual judging will look like at this point. We will require each student prepare photos of their project and have a digital copy of any documents that are important to their projects (PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE THE STUDENT’s NAME IN ANY PHOTOS OR DOCUMENTS BESIDES REQUIRED FORMS). We also suggest preparing a slide show (using Google Slides if possible) that could be used to explain the project, with or without any form of interview (AGAIN NO STUDENT NAMES).
We are currently unsure if we will be able to do a judging interview with all students, so please try to make sure your pictures, documents, and slideshow are clear, and that your process is understandable without the need for an interview.
Finally, if you know someone who works as a web programmer and would be willing to donate some programming time, please ask them to email our webmaster at Webadmin@alaskasciencefair.org
Breaking the Code
The 65th Annual Alaska Science and Engineering Fair (ASEF) will be a virtual fair. 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.
News and Information
2020 Forms are available on the Forms, Downloads & Links page. Senior High students, if you want to be eligible for the grand prizes, you must complete your forms before you do your research!
The 64th Alaska Science & Engineering Fair (ASEF), “React to Science”, was held March 29-31, 2019 at the Northway Mall in Anchorage, Alaska. ASEF would like to thank all the students, teachers, parents, mentors, donors, volunteers, and the Northway Mall for making the event possible. Last year’s senior high grand prize winners came back for a repeat of their exceptional performance, now sharing a tie for First Place: Savio Le, with “Implementation of a Novel Phosphate Absorbing Device for the Mitigation of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)” and Will Deering, with “Developing a Natural-Based Synthetic Honey Salve to Counter Water-Borne Surface-Wound Infections in Rural or Occupational Environments”. A student observer was also selected: Catherine Chen, with “What Kind of Bacteria Contribute to the Taste and Flavor in Fermented Tofu?” These students were invited to attend the International Science & Engineering Fair in Phoenix, Arizona, in May 2019.
