Our Mission:

Established in 1951, the Tidewater Science Congress encourages middle school and high school students from the Hampton Roads, Virginia area to become involved in and excited about learning the processes of research, engineering design, and the technical writing skills needed to clearly and effectively communicate the results of their experiments. By hosting the annual Tidewater Science and Engineering Fair, the congress provides students the opportunity to exhibit and discuss their projects with judges from academia and industry.  In order that students may progress to state and national competitions, the protocols, application process, and evaluation criteria conform to the Virginia State Science and Engineering Fair and the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
