The Science fair is a wonderful way to get students excited about the scientific process ---- and thinking like young scientists! It gives students the opportunity to study a topic that interests them. This year, the projects are as varied as the students' interests, such as sports, music, art, rocketry, psychology, and computers. Through their projects, students discover that science is found in every niche of the universe. --Click the photos to view the photo album.
