Here's how the day of the Fair goes: In the morning, students that performed experiments will meet with scientists to discuss the findings of their experiment. After that, classes will come through the gym to see the displays. In the evening, all students, families and friends are invited for the Science Fair Reception. The reception is from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm in the gym and cafeteria. From 6:30pm to 7:00pm the gym and cafeteria will be open to view the experiments, talk to the Student Scientists about their experiments, and have some snacks. At 7:00pm, awards will be given to recognize participants.
If your child is participating in the Science Fair, please bring their display to the gym after school between 2:30pm and 5:00pm on Monday, March 2 to set up.
