The Southern Appalachian Science and Engineering Fair (SASEF) is the premier science and engineering competition for students in middle and high school in our 23-county service area of East Tennessee. We have promoted teaching the scientific method in science, engineering and math since 1952.
The fair is sponsored by the University of Tennessee and many local companies and agencies. It is held at the UT Thompson Boling Arena during the first week of April. There are two divisions of competition -- Junior Division for middle school students, grades 6 - 8, and Senior Division for high school students, grades 9 - 12.
