FLINT — Join the fun and be rewarded for your efforts at the 56th Annual Flint Regional Science Fair at Kettering University, March 16-18.
Students in grades 4-12 from Genesee, Shiawassee, Lapeer, St. Clair and Tuscola Counties will share their projects and compete for prizes (including an iPad2, iPod and Kindles), scholarships and awards totaling more than $30,000.
Held on the campus of Kettering University in Flint, the Flint Regional Science Fair has a rich history nurturing the natural curiosity of students by encouraging and rewarding students to develop projects using the scientific method. Last day to register without penalty is March 5.
The talent, creativity and enthusiasm of the young people who participate in the Fair is a source of encouragement, pride and joy, and reassuring for parents, teachers, sponsors and judges. The FRSF Board believes everyone who develops and exhibits a project at the FRSF is already a winner. For that reason, every exhibitor at the fair will receive a prize and ribbon and a “goodie bag” filled with neat stuff.
Top prize for the senior division is an Apple iPad and a $2000 Scholarship. Top Junior Division prizes include scholarships and an iPod
In recognition of the vital role of teachers in engaging students in science, the FRSF Board also recognizes a “Teacher of The Year” from those nominated by students, parents and colleagues.
The Science Fair is open to the public March 17 from 2-6 p.m. and March 18 from 12-5 p.m. Award ceremonies are Sunday at 1:30 p.m. for the Elementary Division and 3:15 p.m. for the Junior & Senior Divisions. School groups can visit the fair by appointment on March 19. Visit www.flintsciencefair.org for details and to register. — G.G.
