Science Fair 101Go To Top of Page

Some students may look to their parents for guidance in designing a science project. If you have little or no experience developing a science project, the Science Fair 101 presentation at your school might help. 

Science Fair 101 demonstrates the science project basics for parents. The presentation is FREE, lasts around 30-45 minutes, is held in the evening and is appropriate for grades K-6.
Science Fair 101, presented by the Synopsis Outreach Foundation, will be held on Thursday, April 6 from 6:30 pm to 7:15 pm in the Ruskin Multipurpose Room.  All interested parents are welcome.  Please mark your interest on the Science Fair Participation Slip so we can get a general estimate of attendees.
