With the help of filmmaker Alicia Carter, 'Curious by Nature' takes us on the journey of four students as they compete in the 2021 North Carolina State Science and Engineering Fair during COVID-19. Along the way, we experience firsthand the power of today’s youth to drive meaningful change for the planet and to uplift communities through their curiosity for change. Watch to get inspired.
Note: The NCSEF was recently featured in the NC STEM Center's monthly newsletter.
Science fairs have come a long way from the vinegar and baking soda volcanoes, and the North Carolina Science and Engineering Fair (NCSEF) is ensuring that students from all over the state and across grade levels are getting a real chance to shine.
The NCSEF provides the opportunity for students in 3rd through 12th grades interested in STEM fields to research the topic of their choice and present their work at a public competition with their fellow students. Kids come from all over the state, including from traditionally under-represented areas.

20 North Carolina high school students presented their research at the 2022 Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF)! 1,750 students from 49 states and 63 countries, regions, and territories competed for the nearly $8 million in awards and prizes. From May 4 to May 13, 2022, these young scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and inventors convened virtually and face to face to connect with their peers and global STEM leaders through a variety of events and the culminating Awards Ceremony.
