Science Fair


This is our premiere event and is focused on scientific investigations and or technological process design work. Students projects may be either...


A science investigation in the project section is likely to be the presentation of a hypothesis, followed by the gathering of and analysis of data. All projects must have an independent scientific investigation

A technology exhibit in the project section is likely to show prototyping of a solution to a problem or issue and subsequent development of the prototype. All projects must have an independent technological design process.
