STEM brings forward-thinking, innovative competitions front and center at the Fair. Think of it as the evolution of the Oregon State Fair.


The Oregon State Fair’s STEM team stands as a fascinating counterpoint to more traditional aspect of the Fair. They call it thinking outside of the box. Some say it’s breaking the mold. However you phrase it, there is this: STEM is a visceral celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Welcome to the new age of the Oregon State Fair.

In 2023, STEM will be located inside Creative Living within Columbia Hall. Stretch yourself with an entry in one or more of the following categories!

Building Blocks

This is one of the most popular STEM competitions to enter and to admire. Colorful, snap-together building blocks are used to create wondrous things…whatever the makers might imagine.
