1. 2021 GATEway Science Fair Cancelled
Due to COVID-19 and the inability to hold large in-person events, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 GATEway Science Fair and the free Science Fair workshops. Being non-competitive, our fair is all about the experience. As we worked to define details of online alternatives, we came to the realization that we would not be able to provide a quality experience for students and their families. We look forward to seeing you for the 2022 GATEway Science Fair!

For elementary students interested in a competitive science fair, the Southern Minnesota Regional Science and Engineering Fair is scheduled to be held virtually on April 23, 2021. Details are still being finalized and registration will not open until March.

For middle and high school students, there is the Rochester Regional Science & Engineering Fair being held virtually in February 2021. For more information, see Rochester Regional Science & Engineering Fair.
