Welcome to the Vermont STEM Fair!  

Fair information

Fair Date: March 30, 2019

Fair Location: Norwich University

The Vermont STEM Fair is an inquiry-based poster presentation competition open to all middle and high school level students in the state of Vermont. 

Our state fair is an exciting opportunity for aspiring scientists (grades 5-12) to showcase the results of their independent research.  Each year 200+ student projects addressing all areas of science, technology, engineering and math are judged by at least three judges.  Our judges include scientists, secondary education faculty, dentists, physicians, nurses, military personnel and retirees, and other science related professionals from across Vermont.  Students compete for prizes donated by local organizations and scholarships to Vermont colleges.  The fair is also affiliated with the International Science and Engineering Fair, and five other national and international competitions.

If you're a middle or high school educator and want some ideas on how to incorporate STEM fair projects into your curriculum, we'd be happy to help out!

If you're an aspiring scientist in Vermont, we hope to see you at this year's fair!

STEM College and Career Fair

This year, we will also host a STEM-focused College and Career Fair between the morning poster presentations and the afternoon award ceremony.  If you represent a college or company and would like to reserve a table at this fair, please register here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VTSTEM19.

We are an all volunteer, non-profit [501(c)(3)] organization supported by the Vermont Principals' Association, Norwich University and over 110 other Vermont organizations, colleges and industry partners that share our vision and mission.

Welcome!  We're so excited that you're interested in participating in this year's STEM fair! Registration for the 2019 fair opened in early February and will close Monday, March 11 at 11:59pm.

This year's fair will be held March 30, 2019 at Norwich University.  The 2018 abstract book and 2018 program are available if you would like to see some examples of past projects.  Details about the fair can be found on the Fair Information page.  

When you're ready to register for the fair, make sure your teacher has already registered on our website.  Once your teacher has registered, select the 'Create Account' link at the top of the page and enter your information.  

  • You will need an email address to register. 

  • You will need to select to select a category (e.g. chemistry, math) for your project.  Here the categories for this year's fair can be found on the fair information page on the categories tab.

  • You will be asked whether you would like to be eligible for ISEF-related prizes.    To learn more about ISEF and eligibility, click here: ISEF.  If you have not started the ISEF process by the time you are registering for the fair, it is likely too late to do so, but there are still lots of other great prizes that you are eligible for!

  • You will need to have a title and abstract for your project.  The abstract is a summary of your project including some background information, your hypothesis, the methods you used, and your results and conclusions.  It should be less than 250 words long.

  • If you are part of a group project, each student in the group needs to register.  There is an option for a group project, and once one student has registered the project, the other students will have the option to add themselves to that project using the project's identification number.  If you are part of a group, please make sure that everyone in the group has the same project number after registration!

  • Once you have registered, an email will be sent to your parent asking them to complete a photo release.  This is a legal form that will let us take pictures during the fair and share them afterward, so please make sure your parent completes the form.

 If you run into any problems, ask your teacher!  Hope to see you at the fair!
