Indian River Regional Science & Engineering Fair Program

Intel and USDA Scientists Recognize Saint Edward's Sophmore

2016 IRRSEF Saturday, January 30, 2016 - Gifford Middle School

The Indian River Regional Science and Engineering Fair (IRRSEF) Program is comprehensive and open to all students grades K-12 in public, private, parochial, charter and home-schools. Prior to the establishment of the IRRSEF, students from Indian River County traveled to Brevard County to compete along with students in Brevard. The IRRSEF was the first endeavor of the Education Foundation, and remains its signature program.
 
Program Services:
  1. Provides training opportunities for educators in the area of science.
  2. Provides outreach programs to teach students and parents how to conduct a successful science fair project.
  3. Provides opportunities for awards and scholarships for students.
  4. Provides a regional forum for scientific achievement, as well as, opportunities to compete at state and international levels.
This program has been highly successful in the following ways:
  1. Science research projects resulting from the IRRSEF have brought thousands of dollars in scholarship opportunities to our students.
  2. This program encourages participation from the citizens of Indian River County as judges and mentors.
  3. The program has been beneficial to teachers. Meetings and workshops offer professional development.
  4. The program offers mini-science seminars for students, parents and teachers.

The Education Foundation partners with the School District of Indian River County presenting this regional level of competition for the students of Indian River County. George E. Warren Corporation, Quail Valley Charities, Wells Fargo, Publix Super Market Charities, Toyota - Kia of Vero Beach and Piper Aircraft Corporation are major underwriters of this program.
