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.

Detailed information for 2021-2022 will be available on our website in late summer.
