USEF 2022 will be held on March 8-10!

We are hopeful that USEF will take place in person, at full capacity, at Rice Eccles Stadium.

If we are required to have lower capacity, we have a plan in place to have groups of students attend USEF, in person, in smaller groups, at Rice Eccles Stadium.

If groups are not allowed, we’ll be prepared to hold USEF virtually.

Unfortunately, we won’t know for sure what we’ll be doing until early March but we’ll let you know!

The University of Utah Science & Engineering Fair (formerly named SLVSEF) is an annual science & engineering competition for students in grades 5-12. Participation in science fair stimulates student's interest in science and technology while simultaneously promoting the development of communication, decision making, evaluation of alternative solutions and critical thinking.

USEF is pleased to showcase the inquisitive nature and scientific discovery of some of the best and brightest young minds from the Canyons, Granite, Murray, Park City, Salt Lake, South Summit and Tooele School Districts as well as the Salt Lake Catholic Diocese and all private, home school and charter schools within these boundaries.
