E3 Engineering & Technology Fair

Engineering - Exploration - Experimentation

The E3 Fair, annually organized by engineering societies and industries of the Rochester area, is a half-day event that comprises student design contests on engineering projects and demos from engineering professionals. The goal of the Fair is to increase interest in engineering and technology in middle school students (grades 6-8). Participating students have a unique experience and a great opportunity to collaborate, experiment, and explore engineering.

The Fair began in 1991 and it is hosted at RIT, in Rochester, New York. The Organizing Committee comprises volunteers from various engineering societies, as well as other community members who support this event.

E3 Fair 2020 - Coming up on Monday, March 30, 2020, 9am - 1pm


Due to concerns about student and adult safety related to the coronavirus, in accordance with the advice of RIT administration, the E3 Fair Committee decided to cancel E3 Fair for 2020. We plan to use the same Option 2 and Option 3 design contests used this year for E3 Fair 2021.

We thank you all for your interest, commitment, and support to the Fair. We greatly appreciate you and we are looking forward to your participation next year!
