Initiative for Research and Innovation in STEM (IRIS) National Fair is a public-private partnership program funded by the Department of Science & Technology (DST), and Broadcom; and implemented by EXSTEMPLAR Education Linkers Foundation.
IRIS promotes and nurtures Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research amongst young Indian innovators. It recognizes and rewards outstanding projects and provides a platform for young innovators to get recognized at national and international STEM events.
The IRIS National Fair is conducted annually in India for school students, who compete in 21 subject categories. Winners of the IRIS National Fair go on to represent India at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) held in USA. Till 2021, a total of 291 Indian students have participated in ISEF and have won 177 awards and accolades at this unique mega international event.
