General Science Fair Information
All students are required to do a science fair project. This will be an ongoing effort throughout the year and will count for multiple summative and formative grades. This is not optional. Failure to do it will most likely result in a failing grade in the class. We will go over all requirements for the science fair early in the school year (August 9th, 2013). Please see the links on this website. We had a great turnout to our August 14th and 17th Science Fair meeting here at SHS.
