SUBJECT
Title
Recognition of Santa Clara students for their participation in Santa Clara Valley Science and Engineering Fair Association's Synopsis Championship Science Fair (SCVSEFA Fair)

Report
BACKGROUND
During the annual SCVSEFA Fair, hundreds of Santa Clara County students are challenged to go beyond their classroom studies to do independent project-based research. They work independently, or in teams, to address questions in the fields of Computer Science, Environmental Science, Medicine & Health, Chemistry, Biology, and other categories.
The annual SCVSEFA Fair showcases students in Santa Clara County who will become our future scientists, technology experts, engineers, and mathematicians. This regional competition celebrates achievement by middle and high school students supported by their parents, teachers, and schools.
DISCUSSION
The City of Santa Clara is honored to recognize the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) achievements of our Santa Clara students for their participation in the annual SCVSEFA Fair. The City Council is proud to recognize the accomplishments of these outstanding students.

At the City Council meeting SCVSEFA representatives will introduce the students who participated in the competitions.

FISCAL IMPACT
There is no cost to the City other than staff time.
