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.
North Carolina students have been awarded a record number of awards at the 2021 Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair! North Carolina students were selected from the State NC Science and Engineering Fair (12 projects), the Central Region 3A NC Science and Engineering Fair (1 project), the NCSSM Region 3B Science and Engineering Fair (2 projects), and the UNC-Charlotte Region 6 NC Science and Engineering Fair (2 projects) for a total of 17 projects and 19 students. Students were judged virtually May 3-6, 2021 with the Regeneron ISEF Student Events on May 16-21, 2021.

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.
