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 School District 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.
The Education Foundation of Indian River County (EF-IRC) will host its 22nd Indian River Regional Science and Engineering Fair (IRRSEF) on February 1, 2014 at Gifford Middle School. Presently, the EF-IRC is seeking volunteers to judge the science fair and sponsors to help underwrite the awards and operation of the IRRSEF. The IRRSEF serves more than 27 public and private schools in Indian River County. The success of this regional event is attributed to the continued support of the community.
Volunteers are needed to judge Kindergarten through 5th grade projects. Additional help is needed to judge secondary projects in grades 6th – 12th grades in the areas of Behavioral Sciences, Biochemistry, Botany, Computers/Math, Chemistry, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Medicine and Health, Microbiology, Physics, and Zoology.
