Agenda Item #37
Regional Science Fairs in 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 in local malls. The malls do not charge the school district for the use of their facilities for science fairs. The Brevard South Regional Science and Engineering Fair is scheduled for January 30 and 31, 2009, at Melbourne Square Mall. The Brevard Intracoastal Regional Science and Engineering Fair and the Brevard Mainland Regional Science and Engineering Fair are both scheduled to be held at Merritt Square Mall. The dates are February 6 and 7, 2009, and February 13 and 14, 2009, respectively.
Approve three regional science fairs. Merritt Square Mall and Melbourne Square Mall will permit the use of mall facilities for three regional science fairs in January and February, 2009.
