Baking soda volcanoes! Dinosaur dioramas! The 2018 Science Fair will be Thursday, April 19th from 7-9pm. Students in grades K-4 are invited to make projects either as individual or in groups of up to 4 kids. Some students do experiments and present their results. Others show what they have learned about a topic. Local scientists will interview the students. There is no judging, just fun!

Are you a Scientist? We would like to invite you to participate as an interviewer in the Garrett Park Elementary School Science Fair on Thursday, April 19th, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Giving the kids a chance to discuss their projects with "real live" scientists is something that makes this event unique and special. Please use the link below if you'd be willing to volunteer this year. To assist us in assessing our needs for recruiting additional interviewers, it would be great if you could respond by March 31st.
