The Metro Richmond STEM Fair (MRSF) provides our region’s young scientists with a platform to share research that they have diligently and passionately developed. Through the MRSF, students are afforded the opportunity to present their research to their peers, as well as to educational, industry, scientific and community leaders. The MRSF is a two-level juried, competitive fair and serves as Central Virginia's regional qualifying event for the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and the Broadcom MASTERS Competition. Grand prize winners in the Senior Division receive an all-expense paid trip to attend the Intel ISEF Competition. Junior Division Grand Prize winners submit their projects to the Broadcom MASTERS competition.  Although many of the MRSF students go on to compete in state, national, and international fairs, the MRSF is about far more than winning prizes. The MSRF fosters the development of critical thinking and scientific literacy skills needed for students to make sense of the world, develop new ideas and make informed decisions that will impact their communities.

We are excited to announce that this year, for the first time, ALL of Region 1 public school districts, private schools, and homeschoolers will be eligible to participate.

A $100 application fee will apply, however, 2019 MSiC Consortium Members are exempt from the application fee for the 2020 Fair.

We invite you to learn more about the MRSF, our region’s only ISEF affiliated fair, as well as all of the opportunities that are provided by the MathScience Innovation Center.
