The annual Synposys Sacramento Regional Science and Engineering Fair was held at Folsom High School on Friday and Saturday. Students created experiments and projects in seven categories: behavioral and social sciences, biological sciences, math and computer science, engineering, energy and transportation, chemical and health sciences, and physical sciences. The STEM fair aims to award excellence in STEM fields and students to pursue careers in STEM. Competition winners automatically advance to either the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, Broadcom MASTERS, or the California State Sciences Fair depending on how they place and in which group they competed.
