Welcome to the Home Page of the Sanford Science and Technology Fair (Central South Island). We would like to thank our sponsors for making this event possible.

Our Fair, held annually, is an event where school students from Mid and South Canterbury are invited to display original exhibits on scientific or technological themes. These exhibits are judged by a panel of volunteer judges from the community and prizes are awarded on merit.

Science fairs provide a wonderful opportunity for students to showcase their work. We cordially invite the public to view the exhibits free of charge.
