Academy of Science - St. Louis Science Fair
The Science Fair is underwritten through generous contributions from

For more than 60 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 55,000 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 of Science - St. Louis Science Fair, held at Queeny Park.

The Monsanto Fund and SunEdison continue their tradition of supporting scientific learning and discovery. In 2013, there were over 4,500 students representing 250 public and private schools with close to $60,000 in awards and scholarships presented to top projects.

High school students with honors-level projects further compete for scholarship awards and represent the St. Louis area at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
