Tulare County Science and Engineering Fair

March 24 - 28, 2014



29th Annual Tulare County Science & Engineering Fair
(Grades 3 - 12)
Sequoia Mall, Visalia


The Tulare County Science & Engineering Fair is held annually in the Spring. Traditionally, over 250 science fair projects from grades 3-12 representing schools throughout the county are on display for public view. These projects recognize the outstanding effort and scientific achievement of Tulare County students. Science experts from a wide variety of fields involving both the private and public sectors judge the projects.

All science fair projects support a problem-solving methodology. This type of project asks for adherence to the scientific method; therefore, it is experimental in design. All projects are categorized within 10 major areas of content:
  • Behavioral & Social Sciences
  • Botany
  • Earth & Space Science
  • Engineering & Mathematics
  • Environmental Science
  • Medicine & Health
  • Microbiology & Biochemistry
  • Physical Science
  • Product Testing & Materials Science
  • Zoology
Outstanding projects receive special recognition through the awarding of ribbons and plaques. The top three projects in each category receive a special award from a community-based business. Local industries, such as the health and farming communities, often sponsor special awards for projects meeting specific criteria. The Tulare County Science & Engineering Fair is affiliated with the California State Science Fair. The top science fair projects, as judged by a panel of experts, will continue on to compete in the California State Science Fair.

This year, each project will require a $10 entry fee.
