The California Science & Engineering Fair is the final science fair of the academic year for students throughout the State of California in grades 6 - 12, serving California's future scientists and engineers since 1952. The fair is hosted by the California Science Center.

The 67th annual California Science & Engineering Fair was held on April 23-24, 2018. This year there were 934 participants from 397 schools throughout the State who presented 795 projects in competition for awards totaling $60,000.

Monterey County was proud to send 20 student projects to the Fair this year. We are thrilled to celebrate five students who received special recognitions. They are:
