SCVSEFA Needs Your Support

Each year we encourage projects throughout the county’s middle and high schools. Our science fair, the Synopsys Silicon Valley Science and Technology Championship, hosts 1200+ students competing for prizes, including the opportunity to participate in the California State Science Fair and the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. In 2017 our students won top prizes in both of these competitions.

As our organization’s growth consistently outpaces its ability to bring on new sponsors, we’re always challenged to find ways to stretch our resources and find new sources of funding. With close to 50,000 students coming through the fair since 1960 who now are thought leaders in their respective communities and fields, we realize the importance of our alumni network.

If you’d like to stay connected to the fair, please join our Linkedin group or like us on Facebook.
