The forms for the 2012 STSSF are now available. The fair will be on Saturday, March 17th from 9:00 am until about 3:00 pm. This will be the fair’s tenth year and we hope that it will be better than ever! Please submit your registration before March 5th. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at the 2012 STSSF. Check back soon for information about this year’s workshop.
The 2012 Southern Tier Scholastic Science Fair will be held on Saturday, March 17th. We realize that this is the same day as the Ying TRSEF in Syracuse and that students will not be able to compete in both fairs. We regret the conflict but remain committed to supporting local middle and high school student projects at our community fair! We look forward to a great day of science, fun and prizes and hope to see you there. Please check back on February 1st for updated forms.
The 2012 Southern Tier Scholastic Science Fair will be held on Saturday, March 17th. Please check back in early 2012 for more information and updated registration forms. We hope to see you at the 2012 STSSF!
Thanks to those who participated in the 2011 STSSF! Many thanks to the many volunteers and sponsors who make the STSSF possible.
There were some amazing projects during this year’s Science Fair! Check back soon for a complete list of award winners and some pictures from the awards ceremony.
Light and Spectra Workshop. What is light? White light from the Sun actually includes all the colors of the rainbow. In this workshop we will look at different sources of light and discuss how the type of light we observe is based upon what materials make up the light source, including the chemical makeup of the Sun.
Thanks again to everyone who participated in the 2010 STSSF. We hope to see you again in 2011!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2010 Southern Tier Science Fair! We had another great fair with 66 students competing for bronze, gold and silver medals along with nearly $2000 worth of prizes (which included a fossilized bison ankle bone!) and the chance to move on to the TriRegion Science and Engineering Fair and the Science Teachers Association of NY Science Congress.
When they weren’t meeting with the judges, students had the opportunity to participate in this year’s science fair workshop called “Animal Adaptations”. Teams of students (Firenze’s Flying Foxes, Hollister’s Harelip Suckers and Demetros’ Dodos) studied the skeletons of an arborial quadraped (AKA, a tree monkey) and a terrestrial biped (AKA, a human) and discussed what was different about the two specimens. The teams presented their “research report” about the special adaptations of these two organisms to the entire group. After an unbiased vote from the parents, students on the winning team were entered into a drawing to win a great prize that was just perfect for a terrestrial biped with an iPod. Thanks to Dr. Richard Firenze, Dr. Bill Hollister and Professor Mark Demetros for presenting this year’s workshop.
We wish to thank the many individuals who generously volunteered their time and resources to make the fair a success. Thanks to the many community members who served as judges, gave presentations and worked behind the scenes at the fair. We would also like to thank our major sponsors, Broome Community College, Sigma Xi, CNYAHEC, VMR Electronics and Lockheed Martin for their generous support. Finally, thanks to the teachers and students whose hard work and creativity makes the STSSF such a wonderful event!
