Regional Science Fair Returns to WCC March 14
The best scientific minds of a new generation will be on display at the Southeast Michigan Science Fair March 14 from noon to 4:00pm at WCC’s Morris Lawrence building. The fair, which is open to the public, will provide a fascinating array of experiments, models, collections, and other exhibits created by middle school and high school students.
The science fair, now in its fifty-first year, is a partnership between WCC and the University of Michigan Office of Women in Science and Engineering.
“These kids really put their heart and soul into their projects,” said Laurie Maroney, who is coordinating the event for the College. “It’s amazing to see how their minds wrap around an idea.” Public, private, and parochial schools in Hillsdale, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, and Washtenaw counties are expected to participate.
Exhibits at the science fair are designed to show a biological, chemical, physical, or mathematical principle; a laboratory or logical procedure; an industrial development; or an orderly collection of materials related to the broad concept of any branch of pure or applied science or mathematics.
Exhibits are judged on the basis of originality, scientific thought, thoroughness, accuracy, workmanship, clarity, and dramatic value. 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.
