The Sea Island Regional Science Fair (SIRSF) is the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and Broadcom MASTERS Competition affiliate for Beaufort County and participating schools in Jasper County South Carolina.

The mission of the SIRSF organization is to  identify, encourage and support student talent in the physical, biological, engineering and behavioral sciences through this science fair program. The culminating fair for the high school program is the Regional Science Fair, where the science category winners compete to attend the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). The ISEF, the world's largest international pre- college science competition, provides an annual forum for more than 1,500 high school students from about 70 countries, regions, and territories to showcase their independent research as they compete for over $3 million annually. The Intel ISEF is the premier global science competition for students in grades 9–12.

The Sea Island Regional Science Fair is a 501(c) (3) organization (EIN 27-0659264). Each year our volunteers judge approximately twenty-five local school fairs and the two Sea Island Regional Science Fairs. We have a pool of approximately fifty judges comprised mostly of retired engineers, scientists, and doctors who volunteer their time between November and April to help support science in education through science fairs and other activities. The Sea Island Regional Science Fair is an independent organization with no affiliation with the Beaufort or Jasper County school districts or any private schools; however, we do work closely with all of the schools in our region.

The officers of the organization are elected annually and have been  selected from those associated with the judging and organization of the  school and regional fairs.
