Science Fair

The annual IJAS Region 8 Science Fair at Southern Illinois University Carbondale was held on Tuesday, February 27, 2024 at SIUC. This year, over 150 students in grades 7-12 from the southern tip of Illinois competed. 

There were nineteen different project categories from Aerospace to Behavioral Science to Health Science to Zoology. Over 150 faculty and grad students volunteered as judges from the colleges of Education, Engineering, Liberal Arts, Science, School of Medicine, and others. Approximately 60 projects will go on to compete in the state competition in April.

Many departments and units on campus sponsor student and school awards. Several thousand dollars in prize money is available to participating students and schools. Only schools registered with IJAS are allowed to participate.
