The Fair attracts winners of school and county-based science fairs from Maryland’s Baltimore Region. Students represent public and private schools and home schools. Students come from middle (Division 1) and high (Division 2) schools within Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, and Howard Counties and Baltimore City. The Fair is now operated by the non-profit Baltimore Science Fair Foundation and has been additionally sponsored by the following organizations: Towson University, Lockheed Martin Corp., Baltimore County Public Schools, Constellation Energy Group, and Howard Co Public Schools. The Baltimore Section of ASQ is a contributing supporter.

Is your organization on this list? Your organization can also be a Fair sponsor. Contact David Moore for information.

Winners from the Baltimore Science Fair will compete in the International Science & Engineering Fair to be held in May 13 – 18, 2012 in Pittsburgh PA.

This is a great way to give back to the local community.
