Since 1955, the OCSEF mission has been to enable students to improve their science and engineering skills and literacy while inspiring them to consider careers in STEM fields. We are committed to challenging students to inquire, design, investigate, and present scientific and engineering concepts through hands-on experimentation. Over 600 projects from 52 Schools in Orange County were accepted for the fair in 2020, as we encourage more and more students, from diverse backgrounds, to engage in STEM education.
