The intent of the Science Fair Expo is to support our students with their research projects. Workshops will be available for science fair coordinators, teachers, parents, and students. These workshops are centered on topics specific to the nature of scientific study, engineering, society for science public programs, and other topics related to K-12 science and engineering. Students will present their winning research projects and will share insight from their experiences.
