The Lockheed Martin Science Challenge provides an intermediate event between county science fairs and the state science fair. It operates under the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) rules.

Only students who have won first-place in their county science fairs’ physical science competitions are invited to compete in the Lockheed Martin Science Challenge. Participating counties are: Brevard, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, Sumter and Volusia.


Best in Fair – Physical Science Award

The Science Center Sponsors an award of “Best in Fair – Physical Sciences” in the Science and Engineering Fairs for the nine surrounding counties (Brevard, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, Sumter and Volusia). The categories included are: Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth & Planetary Science, Engineering, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics and Astronomy.

This award for both juniors and seniors (two awards) is an annual family membership to the Science Center. The Best in Fair Physical Science Award is presented to the best Junior and Senior project in the Lockheed Martin Science Challenge categories, to be judged by each Fair’s judges under standard ISEF rules and criteria. The award is given out at the awards ceremony by each Fair Director.

We will send County Fair Directors a packet to hand out, which the winners can then redeem at the Orlando Science Center for the annual Family Membership. The Membership will run one year from the time of redemption. Each Fair Director is responsible for judging and presentation of awards. The Science Center is not available to send judges or participate in the award ceremony – only acknowledgement of Orlando Science Center during the ceremony is desired.
