Forsythe Science Fair 2017
The Forsythe Science Fair is a competitive event where students create and then exhibit a science experiment or model/collection. It is an opportunity for students to learn science hands-on, and to teach others what they learned! The Forsythe Science Fair will be early February, 2017 and is open to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Creating a science fair project allows you to explore topics that YOU decide are interesting, and learn more about how scientists conduct their work. You might even teach your science teacher something new. In addition, you could win an award!
The top six winners in each grade and category (experiments and models/collections) are given medals, and honorable mention ribbons are given to the top 20% winners in each grade and category. All students who submit a project will receive ribbons for their participation.
In order to make the Forsythe Science Fair a success we count out many community volunteers. Volunteers are needed to judge student projects and provide food for the judges. We also need many other volunteers throughout the 5 days of the fair. If you are interested in helping, please click on a link below to register/sign up.Co-chairs are parent volunteers:
