The Fairchild Challenge
The Fairchild Challenge is our award-winning, interdisciplinary, environmental science competition designed to engage students of diverse interests, abilities, talents and backgrounds to explore the natural world. The program has been recognized as a benchmark for exceptional STEM education and for empowering PreK – 12th grade students to become the next generation of scientists, researchers, educated voters, policy makers, and environmentally-minded citizens. Schools can participate in any number of the annual Challenges to accrue points throughout the year. Winning entries will receive awards and prizes.
Save the date! Join us for the 2023-2024 Fairchild Challenge Launch for Middle and High School on Saturday, August 26th and the Elementary Launch on Saturday, September 9th. Registration coming soon.
