The Tri County Science & Technology Fair is annually organized by the Putnam Children’s Discovery Center for the purpose of sharing science with the community and rewarding children who spend their time creating innovative and well researched science projects. These students with support from their parents and teachers are interested in striving for academic excellence with a dedication and commitment to science and technology. The Fair is open to students in grades K-8 who have won first place at their local school fair and to high school students grades 9-12 who have been selected by their principal or science department chair to present original research or demonstrate a scientific principle. The high school students who have opted to enter original research have the added benefit of an opportunity to continue on to the NYS level. In the next few years it is anticipated that the Discovery Center will launch its Original Invention Convention which will provide new opportunities for students who have created a qualified project.
Through this event students have the opportunity to display their work, learn from their peers and be inspired by parents, educators and professionals to pursue their interest in science. Monies raised for this project go primarily for prizes for the students.
Corporate support for this event begins at $250 with “best exposure” at the $1,000 plus level. Donations of $1,000 or more can expect their company name to appear on the banners that are placed throughout the event. It also ensures a spot on the front cover of the brochure as well as on the many posters that are placed in local libraries, schools etc.
Won’t you please consider sponsoring our Tri-County Science Technology Fair?
Your contribution would enable local children from Rockland, Putnam and Westchester Counties, the OPPORTUNITY to compete on a regional level — a prerequisite for high-school students to compete on a statewide level.
Prior to the inception of the Tri-County Science & Technology Fair back in 1992, students were UNABLE to compete at a county-wide science fair because there was no regional competition available.
With an increasing number of participants each year comes an increase in the expenses we incur in staging this fair. Not only does your support reinforce your company’s presence in the community, but it is a continuing pledge and show of support that our children NEED continuous exposure to mathematics, the sciences and technology to further their interest, knowledge and education in these areas. These students are our future engineers, scientists, biologists, doctors, educators. THEY ARE OUR FUTURE. Aren’t they worth the investment?
Past sponsors have included: Praxair, Ciba Specialty Chemicals, PepsiCo Global R&D, Industrial Theater Inc., Philips Research, Duracell, Texaco, Consumers Union, Country Bank, Science Teachers Association of NYC (Westchester Section), Engelhard, TRC Raymond Keyes Associates, Todd Newman, CPA, Hudson Valley Council of Technical Societies, Westchester/Putnam Technology Educators Association, St. Joseph’s School PTA, St. John the Baptist PTA, Milea Hudson Valley Truck Center, Transnuclear, St. John the Evangelist PTA, Harrison High School, and individual donors without whose support these students would have missed an additional opportunity to display their scientific thought and talent.

About the Tri-County Science & Technology Fair
This science fair has been organized for the sole benefit of all grade-level students throughout Putnam, Westchester, and Rockland counties in New York. Our goals in staging this science fair are:1. To provide a competition in which students can compete on a regional level against other students within their grade level from surrounding community schools, both public and private.2. To provide a public event which would encourage students, by learning from other students, to pursue their own interests and studies in the fields of science and technology.3. To provide a public forum where students can display their own visual interpretation of a scientific concept or principle, or technological application, that the student has learned in school, by independent studies or by his/her own developed interest; a forum whereby students, in the process of designing an developing a science project from concept to presentation, exercise specific preparation skills (such as data gathering, evaluation, problem solving, decision making, thought process, and creative thinking).4. To provide a public display of student progress in their education of science and technology, thereby encouraging active, continual involvement by parents, guardians, educators, governments, and the community as a whole, to act as mentors, teachers and supporters of our children as they continue their studies in those fields.The following paragraph applies to High School Entrants only!!!
5. To establish a regional science fair whereby high school students from the designated Tri-county area could compete on the required regional level, thus allowing them to further compete on a statewide level, if the students desire to do so.
Here’s what people have to say about the Tri-County Science & Technology Fair…
I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Westchester-Putnam Technology Educators Association to continue the support of the fine science and technology related activities your center provides our teachers and their students. The Science & technology Fair is an excellent learning experience for all that participate.

The Westchester Section of the Science Teacher’s Association of New York State is proud to acknowledge the continuing contribution to science education made by the Putnam Children’s Discovery Center…It is more important than ever that we look for avenues that can enrich and enhance the curricula which is presented in schools. The hard work and dedication of the staff of the Putnam Children’s Discovery Center provides a mechanism for students to pursue and master science concepts, talk with experts in the sciences, and have fun at the same time…We plan to continue to support their activities.

I want to thank you and the Tri-County Science & Technology Fair Committee for giving me that opportunity to exhibit my research project, and for the generous prize awarded to me.

On April 26th, I had the pleasure of competing in the Tri-County Science and Technology Fair. I would like to thank you for sponsoring this event. The Fair was a real learning experience. I genuinely enjoyed the judging. I would also like to thank you for the generous award of $100 I received for placing first in the Environmental category. College is always an expensive endeavor. This will definitely help me defray the costs. I hope you will continue to sponsor the Tri-County Fair in the future.
