Our current hope is to host an in-person Science & Engineering Fair at Gardiner Area High School on Saturday, May 21, 2022. There are many factors that will go into deciding whether we will ultimately hold the event in person or virtually, but the date will not change regardless. If we do host at Gardiner, we will have a low-contact event if necessary and adhere to CDC guidelines to keep everyone as safe as possible.
We are affiliated with Broadcom MASTERS! What does that mean for you? The top 10% of projects that compete at the MMSSEF get to represent Maine at this national competition! In addition, our Maine students can compete for local awards, including:
