Science Fair 101 PresentationTop 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 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 Synopsys Outreach Foundation, will be held on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 6:45 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.
