Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science and Engineering Fair serves 24 counties in Upstate New York, igniting youth's passion for scientific discovery, showing them what they can achieve in science and engineering now! The Ying TRSEF brings all the pieces of the puzzle together, from management to publicity, from mentors to registration, from Fair Day to the International Science and Engineering Fair, so the North Country, Western NY and the Southern Tier can access a regional science fair for their young own people, and every young person in our state can have his or her chance at this unique path to the future.
The Ying TRSEF works with over 300 school districts and the broader community. We offer a venue for affirming the work done in outstanding programs such as Project Lead the Way and Science Research in the High School, and a panorama of youth organizations such as 4-H, Girl Scouts of America and Boy Scouts of America. Our agenda focuses on STEM education - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Gathering classroom teachers, leaders from the skilled trades, scientists and engineers in industry, professors at community colleges and four-year institutions, and the many Workforce Investment Boards in our territory, the Ying TRSEF cooperates with each to engage the young people who will become the next generation in our nation's STEM workforce.
