CoorsTek Continues Partnership with the University of Colorado’s 2022 Denver Metro Regional Science and Engineering Fair

Golden, CO—CoorsTek is pleased to announce that the company will be the title sponsor again this year for the Denver Metro Regional Science and Engineering Fair (DMRSEF) hosted by the University of Colorado.  Out of an abundance of caution, the 2022 Fair will be held as a virtual event on February 25-27 and will use an online interactive platform to showcase students’ submissions.

CoorsTek helps mentor and guide students with their submissions, offering a “Speak with a Scientist” series, the Activity Fair, and one-on-one mentorships. CoorsTek team members work with the students on their projects, including data collection, experiment designs, and project expansion.  They also help guide the participants on the presentations of projects and work with them to enhance student interview skills.

“It is a fantastic time to engage students in meaningful activities related to the Fair,” said Randel Mercer, Chief Technology Officer for CoorsTek.  “Over the past two years we have seen science fair students continue to thrive. Despite Covid related constraints they have continued to keep their spirits high and imaginations flowing.”

The 2021 fair was also virtual and an outstanding success. encouraging students to create videos discussing their projects as part of the virtual forum and using online tools to drive interactivity. This annual competition engages students in eight counties from Denver metro-area middle schools, high schools, and home schools. DMRSEF is one of Colorado’s 13 Science and Engineering Regional Fairs, with the top winners earning eligibility to compete in the Colorado Science and Engineering Fair. In 2021 over 113 student scientists from 19 different schools, 50 program volunteers, and 125 volunteer judges participated virtually.

The 2021 DMRSEF nominated 52 individual and team projects to compete at the 2021 Colorado Science and Engineering Fair (CSEF), which was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic; 38 DMRSEF projects received recognition at the 2021 CSEF taking home over $7,000 in prizes and cash. The 2022 fair will see over 150 projects on a wide variety of topics.

CoorsTek presents its own special award to those students whose projects align with the company’s vision, “We Make the World Measurably Better.”  These submissions showcase students innovation and creativity and also share comprehensive project details.

About The Denver Metro Regional Science and Engineering Fair (DMRSEF)
The DMRSEF was established in 1963 by the University of Colorado to give pre-collegiate researchers an outlet to engage their scientific interests and an opportunity to interact with professional researchers and scientists. Serving eight counties in the Denver metropolitan area (Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, and Summit), the CoorsTek DMRSEF provides area middle school and high school students a vehicle to develop their scientific skillsets and an annual opportunity to present their research.
