Steering Committee

Annual planning and execution of the fair is more than renting a building and putting up tables. Safety rules change yearly, State Science Fair entrance requirements are updated, International Science Fair logistics are altered, new teachers need to be trained, retiring teachers have to be replaced, judges must be organized and trained, and thousands of students from all over the Dallas area have to be organized and reviewed. This immense operation relies on the support of not just our financial sponsors, but also the time and sweat of the dozens of unpaid volunteers from school districts and private citizens that make the fair possible.

The DRSEF would like to thank the following committee members for their hard work year-after-year.
