PHOENIX --The 2014 Arizona Science and Engineering Fair (AzSEF) brought together more than 1,200 of Arizona's most innovative students from across the state to vie for prizes, scholarships, and a chance to compete at Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, the world's largest science and engineering competition.
Entries include everything from a yummy gummy bear lab to the effect of pH levels on fresh and salt water organisms to wind turbine generators.
"There's no limit to what a child's imagination and ingenuity can bring to life," said Chevy Humphrey, president and CEO of Arizona Science Center. "These students are our next generation of innovators and the Fair is a great way to encourage their exploration of the world around them, while preparing them for the careers of the future."
Arizona youth in fifth through twelfth grades are eligible to enter the competition in categories including behavioral and social sciences, biochemistry, computer science, earth and planetary science, engineering, mathematical sciences, medicine, physics and astronomy, and more.
