Deadlines

Note: In order to register, you need only project title and completed safety paperwork. Be sure to get that safety paperwork in place as soon as you decide on your project! Your final data and report are due in March on Fair Day.

We also expect you to register for local fairs for which you are eligible and the E3 sponsored by the Rochester Engineering Society in April. The TRFSEF is your international affiliate, but these are great opportunities to share your work and learn from judges.
