Agenda Item #31
Regional Science Fairs at Area Malls
The school district sponsors annual regional science and engineering fairs which are affiliated with state and international science and engineering fairs. In order to provide appropriate facilities and to maximize public awareness, these events are scheduled to take place at local malls. The malls do not charge the school district for the use of their facilities for science fairs. The Brevard Intracoastal Regional Science and Engineering Fair and the Brevard Mainland Regional Science and Engineering Fair are scheduled to be held at Merritt Square Mall. The dates are February 5 and 6, 2016 (Intracoastal), and February 12 and 13, 2016 (Mainland). The Brevard South Regional Science and Engineering Fair is scheduled to be held at Melbourne Square Mall on February 19 and 20, 2016.
Approve regional science fairs to be held at the Merritt Square Mall and Melbourne Square Mall, which have agreed to permit the use of mall facilities for regional science fairs in February, 2016.
