The Placer County STEM Expo is our region’s innovative alternative to the typical science fair. This exciting, free, one day event features Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics [STEM] as educational opportunities and viable career paths - showcasing elementary through high school student-generated work - connecting students with their community.
More than just a Science Fair, STEM Expo offers a place for Placer County students to exhibit their work alongside entertainment and learning opportunities for the entire family - including expert presentations, STEM educators, real scientists and interactive events. We allow young minds to experience an innovative environment of hands-on science. The Placer County STEM Expo enables students to explore their interests and talents by offering seven elective categories from which students can choose: Rube Goldberg, Invention, Science Fiction, Environmental Innovation, Engineering [Reverse], Engineering [Robotics] & Scientific Inquiry.
Students have the option to allow judges to critique their project, or simply display it for viewing. Collaborative groups of 2-3 are permitted to work on projects and, in the non-competitive arena, even parents and mentors can work in tandem with students.
In addition to all this, we are proud to be the official county affiliate for the California State Science Fair (CSSF). A student entry in STEM Expo is often the first step that can lead to recognition as one of the top young scientists in California.
