Last weekend, students from across upstate New York gathered at SUNY’s Onondaga Community College for the fourth annual Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science and Engineering Fair (TRSEF).
Numerous partners from across Upstate New York came together to make this possible. More than thirty different sponsors provided funds, volunteers, and a passion for science. Sponsors included private businesses such as Corning Incorporated, community organizations such as the Syracuse Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and institutions of higher education, including Onondaga Community College. With so many sponsors working together to serve New York’s student scientists, the fair is a prime example of harnessing the power of partnerships!
The Ying TRSEF is expanding its reach and creating a buzz in the upstate New York STEM hub. The fair was originally started in 2006 with help from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) and a small group of partners, including the Greater Syracuse Scholastic Science Fair.
