History of the Washington State Science & Engineering Fair

 

The Washington State Science and Engineering began as the Kitsap County Science Fair in 1958. It was jointly sponsored by the Bremerton PTA and Olympic College.

The fair was expanded to include Mason and Jefferson counties in the 1970s. At that time engineering was added and the name was changed to reflect that fact.

In 1984 the Fair became the Western Washington Science and Engineering Fair and was opened to all students located within that geographical area.

During the decade of the 1980s the decision was made to affiliate with the International Science and Engineering Fair and was expanded to become the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair with students from all over the state participating.

Beginning in 1985, each year two students from the fair have represented Washington State at the International Science and Engineering Fair.

The Washington State Science and Engineering Fair is a non-profit organization and is funded solely by contributions and staffed by volunteers.
