Our KICK-OFF event will be meaningful and full of great information to get you started. Display boards can be purchased $5, packets picked up and questions answered! TShirts will also be available for $9 if interested! Packets will be available December 8th in each school office for those who would like to begin before Winter Break.
HELP SESSIONS Each elementary school will host a science fair help session that any student is welcome to attend. Feel free to attend a different school’s session if the dates don’t work for you! A teacher and volunteers will be on hand to help guide the children with project selection, researching, or just pulling it all together. Please send a note with your child to school for permission to stay after and plan to pick up your child at the main door of the school afterward.
