With Spring on the way into the Borderland, the annual tradition of the Sun Country Regional Science and Engineering Fair returns as well. Tuesday afternoon, representatives with the event announced the winners, who’ll be moving on to state and international competitions.
“For the past two years, Insights has partnered with organizers from multiple school districts, the science fair director, Stephanie Carrasco, and hundreds of volunteers from local organizations to host this annual event,” SCRSEF officials added. “Join us in congratulating these future science and engineering rockstars.”
Each year, students from nearly all school districts in El Paso and surrounding areas compete against each other in science fairs held at each campus, then school district, before moving on to the Sun Country Regional Science and Engineering Fair.
Winners from city science fair will soon compete at the state science fair and ultimately the International Science and Engineering Fair. Not only will they be representing El Paso at the international fair, they also will be competing for scholarships, prestigious internships, and other career-making opportunities.
