What is the Golden Gate STEM Fair?

The Golden Gate STEM Fair (GGSF) is a new nonprofit organization that has replaced the previously active San Francisco Bay Area Science Fair. We are working to make GGSF not just a competition, but a community event that celebrates the accomplishments of all of the aspiring scientists who submit their work. GGSF operates as a part of an extended science competition pathway that begins with science fairs at individual junior and senior high schools.

The event on Saturday, March14th is FREE and open to the public with the students’ projects on display for all to see. Also, our supporting partners and other community groups will have engaging science presentations and activities on display. We hope to see you there! If you would like to be involved as a volunteer or community organization please contact the Director.

A Word From Our Director

Welcome to the Golden Gate STEM Fair! I am thrilled that after a couple years reorganizing the previous SF Bay Area Science Fair, the Golden Gate STEM Fair is now a 501(c)3 organization. Our next hurdle is to redefine the science fair concept for the future. This annual event is not meant to be solely a competition with select winners, but a celebration of all students’ work. With many special awards from our partners and sponsors, we aim to identify many categories of outstanding work. Additionally we are building a public event where any science-centered community group may participate with activities, presentations or informational table. For more information, please contact me.

Marcus Wojtkowiak, Director

We Need Your Support!

This annual event was reinvigorated by people passionately support science projects as a tool to establish and refine student research skills. Self-directed science education has been shown to have significant positive impact on students and directly supports Next Generation Science Standards.

If you would like to volunteer for the fair please email the Director.

GGSF is FREE for students to participate. To maintain this accessibility for all, we depend on community support. Please help us keep this fair sustainable and growing by donating today. The more support we receive, the more students we can reach and get involved!
