Congratulations to the top award winners from the Texas Regional Science and Engineering Fairs!
To confirm your participation at this year’s State Texas Science and Engineering Fair, it is important
to follow these three steps:

Step 1: Activate your Personal Identification Number (PIN) provided to you by the Director of your Regional Science and Engineering Fair. To avoid paying the late registration fee of $50.00, activate PIN before the deadline indicated.

Step 2: The Director of your Regional Science and Engineering Fair will need a copy of your abstract and project forms to be sent to the state science and eningeering fair committee:


College of Sciences – BSE 2.110
1 UTSA Circle
San Antonio, TX 78249


or Upload project once PIN is activated.  (Scan all paperwork into 1 .pdf format, compress to a .zip file, and upload through your control panel. 10MB>)

Step 3: Pay your registration fee of $35.00. Payment is required for each student participant. A $15.00 late fee is applied to participants who pay after the PIN Activation deadline date provided. Visit our payment page and input each PIN you are paying for. If paying by check, please input the PIN(s) that you are paying for, print the invoice provided, and attach the invoice with the final amount on the check.  Please account for the $5.00 check processing fee added to your invoice on the check.  (Checks accepted on-site of the state science and engineering fair with invoice.)

$5.00 Check Processing Fee is required for each check.
No processing fee when paying by Visa, Master Card, Discovery, or American Express.
Absolutely NO CASH will be accepted!
