Education Outreach Day 2023

Schools in Texas are invited to bring middle and high schools (grades 5-12) to participate in Education Outreach Day at the Regeneron International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) on Thursday, May 18, 2023! This is a unique opportunity to meet ISEF finalists from around the world and participate in many hands-on, interactive STEM activities.

When: 9am-3pm on Thursday, May 18, 2023
Where: Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, Dallas, TX
How: Schools should complete this form

The theme of this year’s Education Outreach Day is “Building a Scientific Question!” School groups will rotate among activities that pique interest and enthusiasm in STEM and help student attendees generate ideas for their own STEM research projects by building their own scientific questions based on their experiences throughout the day.

Students at Education Outreach Day

The Education Outreach Day for ISEF is one of those days when we as teachers can expose the students to current researchers in their field that they can recognize as peers. It is a wonderful learning opportunity that engages and inspires students to contribute to the scientific community earlier in life.

Grey Hill Academy Students at ISEF Education Outreach Day

This is the first time my Native American students and I had an opportunity to be at the event [ISEF] and meet the finalists. I think it was a great occasion for my students and has motivated them to dream big. I am certain that my students were encouraged by observing and interacting with the ISEF finalists, who travelled from different parts of the world to share their brilliant projects.

Students at Education Outreach Day

This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to experience all that is new and exciting in science and engineering. If one project can inspire one of our students, then the experience was worth it. The students found some of the projects unbelievably amazing. My seniors, who went as freshmen last time, still talk about the experience. Without the generosity of your donors and sponsors, we would not be able to participate — so thank you. Science fairs like ISEF are important to show our students what a little curiosity can do.
