This weekend the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley will host the 59th annual Rio Grande Valley Regional Science and Engineering Fair on the UTRGV Brownsville and Texas Southmost College campuses.

More than 600 middle and high school students will compete individually or in teams to present research in one of 22 categories. The students qualified for the regional fair by placing at their school district science and engineering fairs.

At the regional fair students will present to judges for an opportunity to advance to the Texas Science and Engineering Fair March 29-30 at Texas A&M University in College Station. First-, second- and third-place regional winners advance to state competition.

High school grand champions advance to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, Ariz. in May to compete with peers from around the world.

Students will check in and set up their projects from 4-7 p.m. Friday at the Jacob Brown Auditorium and Garza Gymnasium and Annex in Brownsville. Judging will be from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the same two locations.

Public viewing of the projects will be from 4-5 p.m. Saturday, followed by an awards ceremony at 6 p.m. in the Jacob Brown Auditorium.

The judges who support the RGV RSEF are UTRGV faculty and members of the community. They volunteer their time for the event, which promotes careers in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and math, UTRGV said in a news release.
