In partnership with Merced County Office of Education and a grant from PG&E, the Merced County STEM Fair began in 2017. The STEM Fair takes place annually in March and has seen continued growth over the years and has now expanded to a partnership with UC Merced Research Week. The STEM Fair is a step for Merced County Students to qualify for the California Science & Engineering Fair.
