FLINT — The 59th Annual Flint Regional Science Fair will be held on the campus of Kettering University, March 20-23.
Students in grades 4 through 12 are encouraged to develop and present projects at the 59th Annual Flint Regional Science Fair March 20-23 at Kettering University. The FRSF serves students from Genesee, Lapeer, Shiawassee, St Clair and Tuscola counties. For 2015 FRSF welcomes students from Saginaw County whose regional fair has been discontinued.
“Join in the fun and exercise your curiosity…” says Mike Mosher, President of the FRSF Board whenever he talks with students. “You don’t have to be a genius to do good science or to learn from doing experiments or to grow for the experiences explaining your ideas and projects to judges and others who want to learn about your ideas.” The rewards are many.
Jay Mehta, winner of the 2014 fair said “My message to all participants of FRSF: Don’t be afraid of science, it is not always about complicated formulas or impossible math problems, sometimes science can be really simple and ideas can only stem from kids like you and me. There is an unknown world of science out there that we must investigate to find the answers to. Put your best foot forward into the scientific direction, and our future will be a better place.”
Finalists in all divisions compete for scholarships, gift cards and other prizes. Two senior division students win all-expense paid trips to compete in the INTEL International Science & Engineering Fair (this year in Pittsburgh, PA) and two 9th or 10th grade students win trips to ISEF as Observers. Middle school students can earn nomination to the Broadcom MASTERS competition in Washington, DC. All students receive recognition for their efforts including a bad of neat stuff. All students are considered for Special Awards presented by many sponsors who use their own criteria.
Last day to register without penalty is March 9.
