Scholars stood before teams of judges representing several leading Silicon Valley companies and hundreds of attendees to share their findings on a wide range of science categories including Physical Science, Life Science, Math and Engineering as well as emerging technologies.

“I am extremely proud of our scholars. Participating in a science fair is not only an excellent way for scholars to understand science concepts more thoroughly, but also a wonderful opportunity to boost other important skills and integrate other subjects into one learning experience.” - Dr. Ayodele Thomas, GSP Director

The GSP science fair is the only African American one in California. The scholars adhere to scientific methodology, and experimental design. Scholars also conduct independent research in order to demonstrate a clear and in-depth understanding of their chosen area of exploration. The science fair culminates in a special awards gala to honor participants and award medals for exceptional work.


The GSP Science Fair and Gala showcase event will be held on January 20, 2018 at Stanford University.

Public viewing will be between 12:45-1:45pm. Our Awards Event starts at 3:30pm. Check back later for further details...

The event will feature GSP families, corporate sponsors, dedicated volunteers, and Science Fair judges as we award scholarships to our graduating seniors, and honor science fair participants. Interested in volunteering to judge projects?
