Oh, no! It’s that Science Fair time of year again!
To help ease some of the angst, El Tejon Unified School District is offering, for the first time, a Science Fair Night where families and students may come to learn how to put together a successful science project.
Surprising to some, a science fair project is one of the best learning experiences a student can undertake. If it is taken seriously, it can be an excellent way to earn significant prizes, qualify for scholarships and distinguish a college application.
A high school student whose project goes on to compete at the Kern County Science Fair is automatically eligible for a scholarship, whether they win or not.
Science Night is Tuesday, Dec. 4, at the Frazier Park Elementary School cafeteria, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The district science fair will be Tuesday, January 29, 2013.
For over 13 years, ETUSD has held a district science fair and participated in the Kern County Science Fair. We are fortunate that our district provides this opportunity for students to strengthen their skills, compete with others and represent our schools.
For a tiny district, we have always done exceptionally well, with many of our students winning monetary awards, and we hope to continue the tradition this year.
Everyone is invited to attend Science Night. Come see what all the fun is about!
