Regional Fair registration fees are $25.00 per student being advanced from a district fair.

If a student is home schooled, email rgvrsef@rgvrsef.com to make arrangements to be able to compete.

A UTRGV link will be posted shortly with payment information for advancing students.


Students

This year’s Science and Engineering Fair will continue using the paperless system called Scienteer. This online process improves students’ paperwork, the process of reviewing students’ projects, and increases communication between students, teachers, and fair coordinators.

Each student is to be registered by their District Fair and must complete inputting their project information in order to advance to the Regional Science and Engineering Fair.

Please go to www.scienteer.com

  • Before starting, be sure that your teacher has already created his/her Scienteer account.
  • On your landing page, you must update your profile and add a signature in order to continue.
  • Once completed, under Navigate to your Role, select Student.
  • Complete all steps before you start your experimentation.
  • Detailed directions

*Please be advised that in order to be compete at the RGV Regional Science and Engineering Fair, students must compete at the District level, unless home schooled.
