About the Vermont Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Fair




We envision Vermont as a state where an increasing proportion of our high school seniors choose to continue to pursue advanced education or training in Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Math after graduation.  Through connections and experiences here in Vermont, students see a promising future to remain in the state.




Our mission is to inspire and reward Vermont middle and high school students for high quality inquiry by providing free access to competitions for independent student research and services to Vermont teachers to improve inquiry education.




The Vermont State Science & Mathematics 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), and their teachers to showcase the results of their independent research.  Each year 250 student projects, (selected from over 2000 projects statewide) which address all possible areas of science, technology, engineering and math, are judged by at least three judges, separately.  Our approximately 150 judges include scientists, secondary education faculty, dentists, physicians, nurses, military personnel and retirees, and other science related professionals from across Vermont.  Students compete for more than $6000 in cash and $14000 in trip prizes donated by local organizations, and $900,000 in scholarships to Vermont colleges.  The fair is also affiliated with the International Science and Engineering Fair, and five other national and international competitions, which awards additional prizes.


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.  We offer  free outreach and professional development opportunities related to inquiry education to all public and private middle and high school science  and math teachers.
