About The Fair

For more than 70 years, the Science Fair has been an amazing science catalyst for students in kindergarten through high school. Under the leadership of the Academy, hundreds of educators, scientists and science advocates work year-round to bring science inquiry to life for more than 100,000 students in the St. Louis area participating each year in the Science Fair. School districts select their top student projects and submit them to the Academy's Regional Science Fair.

The Bayer Fund and Boeing continue their tradition of supporting scientific learning and discovery.

ACADEMY OF SCIENCE - ST. LOUIS SCIENCE FAIR LEADS THE WAY!

With social distancing for the Grades K-12 Fair, St. Louis leads the way! St. Louis was the first science fair in the nation offering an e-fair component over 10 years ago - which translates to a solution during this COVID 19 crisis!  This year the Academy’s science fair transitions to an all on-line efair with easy instructions and “how to” video for teachers/students/parents.

Amid cancellation of annual events and traditions and the shutdown of schools, students have been completing their science fair projects remotely -- in their homes, garages and basements!
