Rochester Engineering Society
Presents our Annual
Our 24th year
|The E3 Fair began in 1991 and was organized by, and is funded by, engineering societies of the Rochester area and local industries. Its purpose is to increase interest in engineering and technology in middle school students (Grades 6 – 8), who not only learn team and process concepts as a result of their projects, but also learn about careers in engineering from professional engineers at the Fair. The E3 Fair Committee is all volunteer - comprised of engineers representing various Rochester engineering societies and community members who want to support this worthwhile event.|
Option II, Simple Machine, asks students to design and build a
motorized LEGO vehicle that
performs a predetermined challenge.
These range from Cranes to Race Cars
to Tractor-pull vehicles.
Option III, Robotics: ‘A-Maze-ing Robot’ Design, construct and program a robot, to navigate a maze from the “Start” box to the “Finish” Box in the shortest time.

How Can My Professional Organization Get
Since its inception, the Fair has been a terrific success. Each year it has grown in size and in the level of support. More than 4000 total students attended the Fairs in 1996 and 1997, and approximately 1300 total middle school students actually participated in the Fair over the last two years. The numbers have increased each year since the Fair's inception. You can be part of the E3 team and participate in a variety of different ways:
The Fair needs your
financial support. Much
of the budget is used to provide awards, prizes, certificates, and Fair
to the students. We do our best to make sure that every student
participating in E3
takes home something. The
the budget is used to put on the Fair. The Fair is organized and run
entirely by volunteers. It is nonprofit; all moneys donated are used
for the Fair.
may be made by check
payable to RES and sent to:
• The Fair needs your help in providing booths with displays (preferably hands-on) or demonstrations of engineering principles or technologies to be exhibited at the Fair.
• The Fair needs volunteers to serve as judges or engineering mentors to the students participating in the Fair.
• The Fair needs volunteers to take part in the various planning and organizational activities - there are plenty of ways to help!
