Welcome to the Santa Cruz County Science and Engineering Fair!

Our Mission

The Santa Cruz County Science & Engineering Fair promotes diversity and high-quality scientific research and science education for K-12 students in Santa Cruz County.

Our Goals

The Santa Cruz County Science & Engineering Fair will provide the highest quality special events for students seeking opportunities in pre-collegiate scientific research, and world-class science and technology competitions.

 

The Santa Cruz County Science & Engineering Fair (SCCSF) is a regional academic science, mathematics, technology, and engineering competition for students in grades K-12. Through the generous support of Poly, Seagate Technology, SCCSF sponsors the Santa Cruz International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and California State Science Fair (CSSF) teams.
