Science Fair LogoA week-long event held at Humboldt State University celebrating excellence in science for students in 4th grade through high school, the Fair has showcased local students’ science projects for over 30 years. More than 300 students in the County take part in this event that honors the memory of Dr. Doris Niles, a beloved, Humboldt County teacher who was instrumental in furthering students’ and teachers’ science educations.

Students may compete individually or in pairs within a variety of categories such as Physical Science, Life Science, or Math and Engineering. Over 100 volunteer judges review displays and conduct student interviews throughout the week, culminating in an awards ceremony where 125 medals and special recognition awards are presented. A highlight is the awarding of the special “Dr. Doris Niles Perpetual Trophy” which is presented to a “young student of promise”.

*Due to Covid-19 the 2021 Science Fair  and Science Fair Awards Ceremony will be held virtually. For more information please visit this link.
