There’s an Intel-affiliated science and engineering fair today (Sat.) in New York’s Westchester County, during which students are competing for scholarships, and a chance to travel to even bigger science fairs.
350 high-school students from 35 high schools are competing today at the 13th annual Regeneron – Westchester Science and Engineering Fair. The competition and awards ceremony take place at Sleepy Hollow High School. Thirteen top projects will win a trip to the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair in Phoenix in May. Three additional projects will win spots at the International Sustainable World Project Olympiad. At today’s fair, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino is announcing the county’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, or STEM, initiatives with the business community, the Westchester Office of Economic Development and the Westchester Youth Bureau.
