23rd Annual Kentucky Science & Engineering Fair  

Save the Date!  

Join us Friday and Saturday, March 28 and 29, 2025 at Eastern Kentucky University’s Student Recreation Center for the 23rd Annual Kentucky Science & Engineering Fair!  The Student Recreation Center is located at 228 Park Drive behind our former venue, the Alumni Coliseum.  


2024 Awards

The 2024 Awards Ceremony was live streamed at 2:00p.m. Sunday, March 24 and can be viewed via EKU E-presence.  List of 2024 Award Winners.

NOTE:  The Science & Engineering Fair of Northern Kentucky (SEFNK) was not be held in 2024. The Louisville, Central, and East regional fairs accepted student projects from the affected counties.

On March 23, 2024 the in-person fair moved from Alumni Coliseum at Eastern Kentucky University to the new EKU Student Recreation Center!  Nearly 300 participants competed in 22 STEM categories as well as for a variety of special awards.  Middle School students grades 6 – 8 were selected to compete in the Thermo Fisher Scientific Junior Innovators Challenge .  High School students grades 9 – 12 were selected to present at the 2024 Regeneron International Science & Engineering Fair.

Check out the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair where Team Kentucky competed May 13-19, 2023 in Dallas, Texas.  Regeneron ISEF 2024 will take place in Los Angeles, California from May 11-17, 2024.  Visit here for Regeneron ISEF 2024 information.

We are grateful to our partners at Kentucky-based STEM Wizard for working collaboratively with us to support the ambitions of our participants.
