Regional Science Fair Returns to WCC March 12-13

For the twenty-third consecutive year, the Southeastern Michigan Science Fair returns to WCC March 12-13. The University of Michigan is cosponsoring the event.

Now in its 52nd year, the fair seeks to spark student interest in scientific projects. The remarkable array of experiments, models, collections, and senior exhibits in six categories will be displayed in WCC’s Morris Lawrence building and open to the public from noon to 4:00pm on March 13.

The fair is open to public, private, and parochial schools in Hillsdale, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, and Washtenaw counties.

Established in 1958, the science fair showcases student exhibits designed to show a biological, chemical, physical, or mathematical principle; a laboratory or logical procedure; an industrial development; or a collection of materials related to the broad concept of any branch of pure or applied science or mathematics.

Competitions are separated into two divisions. Sixth, seventh, and eighth graders are eligible for the middle school division. They are encouraged to exhibit experiments, models, and collections. Student teams of up to three members can enter and be judged in a separate category. The purpose of this category is to encourage cooperation and teamwork in science exploration.

Students or teams in the high school division, grades nine through 12, submit exhibits in biology, chemistry, physics/engineering, mathematics, earth science, and science and society. The top 10 award winners are eligible to attend the Michigan Science and Engineering Fair in Detroit in April. First and second place Grand Award winners are invited to attend the International Science Fair in May, with all expenses paid.

Judges will evaluate the exhibits based on originality, scientific thought, thoroughness, accuracy, workmanship, clarity, and dramatic value.

For more information, email call 734-615-4455, or visit the fair’s website.
