OSU to host National American Indian Science and Engineering Fair


STILLWATER, Okla. (Feb. 13, 2018) — The National American Indian Science and Engineering Fair is getting a physical location at Oklahoma State University in April. 


The fair will be April 6 at the Wes Watkins Center in Stillwater. The onsite fair will add to the participating students’ experience while still offering virtual participation for students in remote locations. The OSU location will also offer space for students to engage with American Indian culture, interact with STEM professionals, mentors and peers, and tour STEM facilities on campus. 


The onsite fair at OSU is limited to only 200 participants. The deadline to register is Feb. 23, with a deadline for abstract submissions on March 1. Learn more and register at


The event is a pre-college program of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, where American Indian students in fifth through 12th grades present science and engineering research. Senior division participants — ninth through 12th grades — could win free trips to the International Science and Engineering Fair in May in Phoenix, with travel and registration paid by the society. The fair supports American Indian students in discovering, pursuing and sustaining interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
