The Suncoast Credit Union Elementary Science Expo (a regional science fair program) is a STEM event for students in grades K-5. Participants must be enrolled as a student in grades K-5 in a public, private, or home school located in Charlotte, Collier or Lee Counties. Public and Private school students first present current projects describing and illustrating their independent research at their school-based science fair. Then each school may submit a certain number of student projects in the Elementary Science Expo. Homeschool students should contact the homeschool department in their school district to determine eligibility for being displayed at Elementary Science Expo. The project must begin in the current school year; past projects are not eligible.
