Science and Engineering Fair


In light of the everchanging COVID-19 situation, we wanted to inform you about the sad, but perhaps not unexpected news, that both the 2020 Solano County (SCSEF) and California Science and Engineering Fairs (CSEF) have been canceled at this time.

Despite the current situation, we are proactively planning for next year’s science and engineering fair. The SCSEF tentative dates are March 15-16, 2021. We look forward to seeing many of you then. The state has announced the scheduled dates of CSEF 2021 as April 12-13, 2021.2020
