The science fair is a wonderful opportunity to learn and present what you know and love about science. Students will choose any topic they truly enjoy, run several experiments, and then present their findings at the Fair. Students may choose to work on an individual project or team up with a partner. There is no entry fee and awards and prizes will be given. For additional information, project ideas, and guidelines, please email Brett Andree at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you at the fair!
