FAIRWAY, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Kansas State Science & Engineering Fair (KSSEF) will be held on April 6th, 2018, at the Cessna Activity Center in Wichita, Kansas. KSSEF represents an excellent opportunity for aspiring students across Kansas to challenge one another, and themselves, to expand their knowledge of the scientific fields. Students will gain experience in critical thinking, leadership, and develop their problem-solving skills. The winning students will receive numerous awards that include trophies, cash, and scholarships. KSSEF provides a progressive opportunity for students to compete in local, regional, state, and international levels.

Students competing at the KSSEF will have competed at one of the six regional science fairs within Kansas and finished in the top 25% of their respective division. Students are required to have completed their own scientific research and must present their findings in both written and oral formats. Students who were judged to be in the top 35, or 25%, of their division in the regional fair will advance to KSSEF. The fair will showcase over 200 projects from students in grades 4-12.

How to get involved with KSSEF. Volunteers in STEM related fields are scheduled to meet with students and judge their scientific research at KSSEF. If you are interested in volunteering as a judge, please complete the application on the KSSEF website.

The projects and team members of the Kansas State Science and Engineering Fair reach new heights every year, but all progress is made possible by those who donate to this cause. The Kansas State Science and Engineering Fair would like to thank our primary sponsor, Westar Energy, as well as all our volunteers and our additional sponsors, including BioKansas.
