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 schools (Division 1) and high schools (Division 2) 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 numerous additional sponsors and independent judging organizations including the following: Towson University, Towson-Timonium Kiwanis Foundation, Baltimore and Howard County Public Schools, American Chemical Society, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, American Meteorological Society, ASM International Foundation, Discovery Channel, HHS, IEEE Photonic Society, Intel, NIH, NOAA, NSA, National Society of Black Engineers, National Society of Professional Engineers, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Optical Society of America, PNC Bank, Ricoh Corporation, Society of Women Engineers, T Rowe Price Foundation, U.S. Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy, and the Yale Science & Engineering Association. The Baltimore Section of ASQ serves as both a contributing sponsor and an independent judging organization.

Winners from the Baltimore Science Fair will compete in the International Science & Engineering Fair to be held in Phoenix, AZ in May 2016.

This is a great way to give back to the local community (and to enjoy being impressed by some exceptionally bright students).
