The Monterey County Science Fair encourages children to pursue in-depth study of natural phenomena through scientific research and acknowledges the positive accomplishments of those youth. During the fair, students display their research projects and present their findings orally and through written journals to a team of scientists who volunteer as judges. These judges confirm the students' understandings of the scientific concepts and the research methods involved in their projects. The judges also will offer practical and positivie feedback regarding their application of the scientific method to a problem, encouraging them to improve their future scientific research efforts. The next fair will be March 25 to 27, 2011.
