The annual National American Indian Science & Engineering Fair, sponsored by AISES and other organizations, is a learning venture for American Indian students grades 5-12. It fosters a love of learning as well as communication, professionalism, and enthusiasm. Additionally, students may receive prestigious academic and financial awards and recognition.
This undertaking is an educational activity that allows students to teach themselves, to take from the established information what they need to discover something new, and to identify and choose the tools that they need to conduct and conclude their project. When a student completes a science fair project year after year, through junior and senior high school, the science project produces mature, self-confident, skilled and competitive young leaders who have career goals and the preparation to attain them.
