Twin Cities Regional Science Fair


Feb 27-28th, 2004

The Twin Cities Regional Science Fair (TCRSF) exists solely for the betterment of youth in the Twin Cities area. Our mission is to provide opportunities for interaction with mentors, discussion of project goals, presentation of ideas, and project analysis for all youth in the Twin Cities area. We strongly support under-represented groups with financial assistance, mentor involvement, and project guidance. We strive to motivate, encourage, and support all efforts by a philosophy of, "Everyone who tries is a winner."

Students who live in Hennepin, Ramsey, Washington, and Dakota Counties who are in grades 6-12 are invited to participate.
