The Nevada County STEAM Expo Fair Planning Committee will hold a Virtual Scientific Inquiry Competition and winner will be announced on Friday, March 25, 2022 from 1-2pm via Zoom and posted on this site. The decision to host this event in a virtual platform was informed by multiple entities and factors including the continued unpredictability of COVID-related concerns, and the completely virtual format of the 2022 California Science and Engineering Fair and the National Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) that will require virtual presentation materials much like last year. Our 2022 Virtual Scientific Inquiry Fair will follow a similar format to CSEF and will continue to serve as a qualifying event for students in grades 6-12 state and national competitions.

All pertinent information will be posted to this website. Please check back frequently as we continue to provide updated information about our 2022 Fair.

Please contact STEAM Project Coordinator, Carolyn Ferrero, directly at (530) 478-6400 or by email at cferrero@nevco.org with any questions.
