Update: During this time, everyone’s safety and well-being is our utmost concern. As such, TXSEF will not move forward as a competition. Rather, this year, it will become an online-only TXSEF Research Review. Visit the COVID-19 Updates page to see the details.
About the Fair
6th – 12th grade students compete in regional science and engineering fairs across Texas during January, February and March to advance to the state fair. The fair includes 20+ categories spanning across engineering, biological sciences and physical sciences. Winning high school entries advance to compete in the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF).

TXSEF winners in the high school divisions also earn the opportunity to attend the Governor’s Science and Technology Champions Academy and advance to the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair.
Opportunities for collaboration & participation
More than 350 judges for 20+ categories spanning across engineering, biological sciences, and physical sciences are needed during the fair.
Companies, educational institutions and non-profit organizations are also welcome to become exhibitors at TXSEF.
