Since 1958, our Regional Science & Engineering Fair (RSEF) program challenges thousands of students from across Southwest Florida to go beyond their classroom studies and pursue independent project-based research. Students work independently or in teams to address questions in the fields of Computer Science, Environmental Science, Medicine & Health, Chemistry, Biology, and a half dozen other categories.
Since 1988, the Thomas A. Edison Festival of Light Regional Inventors Fair has been inspiring students across Southwest Florida to “hatch an idea.” In a rapidly changing, highly competitive world, new ideas must be generated in every aspect of a business to keep it healthy. Most successful businesses constantly assess and reinvent themselves.
Elementary Science Expo
Since 2005, Elementary Science Expo has served as a showcase event for K-5 students that competed in school-based science and inventors fair competitions. This event is open to students from public, private, charter, and home schools in Charlotte, Collier and Lee Counties.
