Each year San Joaquin County Science and Engineering Fair (SJCSEF) awards thousands of dollars to students of San Joaquin County who exhibit superior levels of understanding and articulation in the area of science, engineering, technology and mathematics. Top students proceed to the California State Science Fair held each year in Los Angeles.
Our mission is to engage and inspire students to become interested in pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
