Virginia State Science and Engineering Fair (VSSEF) is the premier state science and engineering fair that hosts nearly 300 students and roughly 240 projects from high school level scientists from 12 regional Virginia fairs. In addition, roughly 75-100 qualified judges volunteer to assess 17 categories and special award projects. There are three winners per category and three overall winners in addition to the many special awards given out - cash and award payments totaling over $10,000. Chosen students will register to enter into competition on Saturday, March 28. Set-up and safety check will take place on Friday evening, March 27.
All programming for VSSEF is held in Cameron Hall.
