Southern Appalachian Science & Engineering Fair

The Southern Appalachian Science & Engineering Fair (SASEF) is traditionally an annual event held at Thompson Boling Arena during the last week of March or first week of April. Students are invited to present their research covering a variety of categories in STEM.There are two divisions of competition — Junior Division for middle school students, grades 6 – 8, and Senior Division for high school students, grades 9 – 12.

In 2020 and 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SASEF was hosted in a virtual format. Check out these photos of the 2020 event. You can also find a list of the 2020 award winners here and a list of the 2021 award winners here
