With categories from Animal Sciences to Physics, the science fair is designed to promote, encourage, showcase and reward the achievements of our students in the various fields of science.

By developing skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, students are laying the groundwork for their future success.

Spreading the excitement of science is a cooperative education effort. Without the help and support of our sponsors, volunteers, parents, and teachers, this worthwhile event would not be such a great success. On behalf of my office and the Science Fair, I thank you for your participation and hard work, and look forward to a fun, successful, and educational event.

The Science Fair brings together students, teachers, and scientists from around the county to: Develop in students an awareness of the importance of science in their lives and to cultivate students’ interest in science; Support students’ acquisition of scientific knowledge and research skills; Extend and reinforce the Science Content Standards for California Public Schools; Recognize and reward outstanding achievement in science; and Motivate students to undertake and complete scientific inquiries in their special areas of interest.

Each year thousands of Ventura County student’s, in grades 6-12, complete science research projects at their schools, and nearly 1,000 of those students earn the right to compete at the Ventura County Science Fair. Approximately 75 of our top students are invited to the State Science Fair to compete with their peers from across California where many of our past students have placed in the top three for their category and some have been awarded Project of the Year. Approximately 275 science, engineering, and industry professionals from throughout Ventura County volunteer their time to serve as judges for the Science Fair.
