If you represent a NYS ISEF-affiliated regional STEM Fair which could use more support, consider a Terra Fair Partnership. You and your committee continue to conduct your fair; Terra simply pays for the international fees and brings your Finalists to ISEF and the GENIUS Olympiad.
Terra Fairs play a key role regionally and beyond as we strive to create a world that draws upon the potential of every person to make a positive difference in the world. Terra Science and Education provides middle and high school students the opportunity to engage in authentic scientific research or engineering practice and to share their experiences and findings with others in an ISEF-affiliated science and engineering fair. Terra works tirelessly to meet the educational needs of the underserved and under-represented, including women in STEM. While we concentrate on more than 25 science fair counties, many of our resources are available to the general public regardless of geography.
