Science & Engineering Fair

What is the Alamo Regional Science & Engineering Fair?

Alamo Regional Science and Engineering Fair (ARSEF) promotes interest in the pursuit of scientific inquiry among middle and high school students through an annual meeting and research presentation competition.  Each year, more than 500 of the Alamo’s best and brightest middle and high school students qualify for ARSEF out of more than 1,500 students competing at School and District Science Fairs. Through the fair, students network with like-minded peers and STEM professionals and compete for prizes and awards. Some also advance to national competitions like Regeneron ISEF and Broadcom Masters.

Who can participate?

ARSEF is for students (gr. 6-12).  Public, Private, Parochial, Magnet, and Home schools may enter AJAS. Independent entries are accepted if a student’s school does not have a program on their campus.
