Science Olympiad and Science Fair
The STEM Center organizes and hosts the annual Regional Science Olympiad and Regional Science Fair for middle and high school students. Each year, winning teams from area schools gather at SIUE to compete for the chance to advance to the state and national levels for these events. Participating students and their families have the opportunity to experience the campus and to interact with faculty and staff while engaging in authentic scientific activities.
