Michigan Science and Engineering Fair


The annual MSEF will be held concurrently with the SEFMD on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at TCF Center (formerly called Cobo Center). All SEFMD senior division first-place and second place winners will automatically be entered into this competition, and the fair will also be open to students from other areas of the state. The purpose of the State Fair is to provide more students with the opportunity to undertake science fair projects and competition; it also enables two additional students from the state of Michigan to compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair in May.
