- The Fairs
- Curious Minds
The Massachusetts Middle School Science & Engineering Fair is a forum for students in grades 6-8 to explore "real world" science and engineering discovery through hands-on experience. Students also learn about the many exciting and emerging fields of science and technology today, building important life skills-- from reading, writing and math to communications, teamwork and design. It's fun! It's exciting! It's a pathway to a great career!
The first statewide competitive Fair was held in 1999, and since that time, participation has been on the rise. Approximately 300 students now participate in individual and team projects. Cabot Corporation, the Boston based global specialty chemicals company, is the official sponsor of the statewide middle school fair. We are indebted to Cabot for its support, and we wish to recognize the company's significant commitment to science education, its parallel to the corporate slogan, "Creating What Matters," and its continuous dedication to innovation, performance and long-term growth. Worcester Technical High School, One Skyline Drive, is the official host site of the Statewide Middle School Science & Engineering Fair, and the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester provides administrative facilities and services. We extend our gratitude and appreciation to these two institutions for their commitment to this group of young scientists and their fostering of creating a greater awareness of opportunities in science and technology.
