The Science Fair will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, March 30, on campus. Projects in biology, computer science, engineering, mathematics, and other sciences are welcome.
Students from Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegany counties in New York and students from Warren, Potter, and McKean counties in Pennsylvania are invited to participate. The top three winning projects will win Amazon gift cards.
The winner of the SBU Twin Tiers Regional Science fair will participate in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles, California – the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. A winner will also be chosen to compete at the International Genius Olympiad held at SUNY Oswego.
