Science Fair Brings Local Middle and High School Students Together
I think most people remember that science project you did in grade school that you did for your school science fair. There’s once coming up at SUNY Broome on Saturday, March 12th from 9am to 3:30pm that will bring together middle and high school students in the Southern Tier.
The Southern Tier Scholastic Science Fair is in it’s fourteenth year and is dedicated to encouraging the Southern Tier students to pursue scientific and technological inquiries through individual science projects. The Science Fair provides a forum for developing academic skills, including familiarity with the scientific method, conducting an independent scientific investigation, speaking and preparing an organized display.
Nearly 100 local students will have the opportunity to participate in two exciting workshops, meet with the judges and be considered for more than $2,000 in awards and prizes donated by local businesses and organizations.
Faculty from the SUNY Broome’s Division of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) will conduct morning workshops that give students the opportunity to mix and mold cement while learning about strength and density; use math to identify patterns; and engage in inventive problem-solving. In the afternoon, engineers from Lockheed Martin will provide an interactive stage show about 3D printing, followed by displays of 3D printers in action.
