The Southern Tier Scholastic Science Fair is dedicated to encouraging middle and high school students of the Southern Tier of New York State to pursue and excel in scientific and technological inquiries through individual science projects. The Science Fair provides a forum for developing academic skills, such as conducting an independent scientific investigation, writing research papers, speaking, preparing an organized display, and becoming familiar with the scientific method. In addition, the event is intended to foster awareness, appreciation, and recognition of the importance of science to career opportunities, academic achievement, and lifelong success in a technological society.
The Southern Tier Scholastic Science Fair includes private industry, government, service clubs and local individuals in the educational and support process. Major sponsors of the fair include Broome Community College, Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems, IBM and The Triple Cities-NY Chapter of Sigma Xi. We can also thank multiple organizations and individuals whose donations also make the fair a great success every year. Click here for a list of additional donors.
