Agenda Item #30


Title
Regional Science Fairs at Area Mall

Discussion

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 one local mall.  The mall does not charge the school district for the use of its facilities for science fairs.

The Brevard Intracoastal Regional Science and Engineering Fair, the Brevard South Regional Science and Engineering Fair, and the Brevard Mainland Regional Science and Engineering Fair are all scheduled to be held at Merritt Square Mall.  The dates are February 3 and 4, 2012, February 10 and 11, 2012, and February 17 and 18, 2012, respectively.



Recommendation

Approve regional science fairs to be held at the Merritt Square Mall, which has agreed to permit the use of mall facilities for three regional science fairs in February, 2012.
