Donors & Volunteers


Will you help to make sure that students who attend this year’s STEM Fair find a supportive community willing to reward their hard work through donations for operational support, state and international competition sponsorships, and regional competition awards?

  • General Funds make the STEM Fair happen by providing BACKING for students who travel to the Minnesota Science Fair and to the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair, as well as offering OPERATIONAL SUPPORT for materials, supplies, and local student transportation for the regional fair. 
  • Student Award Funds celebrate student success by supporting STUDENT AWARDS, MEDALS, AND TROPHIES for individuals at our regional competition. GATEway, Rochester’s chapter of the Minnesota Council for Gifted and Talented, partners with us to accept donations for student awards and prizes so public spending restrictions do not limit participant awards.

With your support, we can continue to encourage students to become forces of nature by encouraging them to harness the power of their ideas and make innovative discoveries that can impact our community far into the future.

As always, the STEM Fair needs over 100 judges and event volunteers each year to make the day a success. Click HERE to fill out our volunteer form. If you have any additional questions, please contact Josh Halverson for more information. We greatly appreciate your help!
