TCRSF Mission Statement

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."

About the Fair

Students who live 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 Fair:

Student participants in the science fair can compete in the project competition (grades 6-12) but are also welcome to and encouraged to  participate in a separate paper competition (grades 7-12).

The Twin Cities Regional Science Fair sends winning students on to the Minnesota State Science Fair as well as the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). If you have questions about how to participate in the science fair, please contact the fairdirector@tcrsf.org.
