SARSEF Science Fair Winners

The Southern Arizona Regional Science and Engineering Fair (SARSEF) was held February 29 and March 1 at the Tucson Convention Center. Almost 2,000 project boards were displayed and judged by a team of volunteer scientists and engineers.

Students could receive recognition from a sponsoring group, a Grand Award, or, in some cases, both. Grand Awards represent the top three projects in that category and grade level in the Southern Arizona Region.
