LRSEF 2018 in Review

LRSEF Students at the KY State Capitol

From the successful LRSEF 2018 held in March to cheering on students at ISEF and Broadcom MASTERS, it’s been a great year for the Louisville Regional Science & Engineering Fair.

The 2018 Louisville Regional Science & Engineering Fair was held on March 3 at the Kentucky Science Center with 283 students in grades 6-12 registering 251 different projects. Students served were from Jefferson, Marion and Oldham counties.

The Science Center welcomed the event for the fourth year, and more than 1,000 guests from the public engaged with the students to learn about Engineering, Microbiology, Chemistry, Plant Science and more.

Over $10,000 in cash was awarded to students along with trophies, certificates and ribbons in 22 different STEM categories. Included were over 60 special awards sponsored by local or national companies and nonprofits. LRSEF volunteers included over 200 judges with expertise in the STEM fields and nearly 50 community volunteers serving as hosts.

LRSEF will be held at the Kentucky Science Center for this academic year on Saturday, March 2, 2019.
