Science Fair Recognition


Presented By

Trine University


Many great scientists get their start by participating in their school’s science fair. Whether science fair participants win or lose, it doesn’t matter – what really matters is that they’ve learned something and have cultivated a long-term interest in science!

Every spring, Science Central celebrates local science fair participants with our Science Fair Recognition Day. This year, the recognition will come digitally, rather than in person, due to COVID-19 considerations.
