Students who attend school (public, private, charter, home school) in Hennepin, Ramsey, Washington, and Dakota Counties who are in grades 6-12 are invited to participate.
There are three ways for a student to participate in the Twin Cities Regional Science Fairs:
- Participate in a school science fair and be chosen to advance to the regional fair, or
- Participate in a Minnesota Academy of Science-Affiliated Science Club, or
- Obtain teacher or the adult project mentor approval and recommendation to compete at the regional level.
You may also contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about entering the regional fair directly.
If you contact us directly, please provide your name, grade level (grade 6-12) and your research plan, or a short description of your project or experiment.
Student participants in the science fair can compete in the project competition (grades 6-12)
and are also encouraged to participate in the research paper competition (grades 6-12) using the same experimental work.
The Twin Cities Regional Science Fairs sends winning students from grades 6-12 on to the Minnesota State Science and Engineering Fair, a program of the
Minnesota Academy of Science,
as well as to the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) (grades 9-12 only)
and Broadcom MASTERS™ Competition (grades 6-8 only).
If you have questions about how to participate in the science fair, please contact the Fair Director
