Regional Science Fair February 15 at ABAC
TIFTON–The School of Science and Mathematics at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College will host the Regional Science and Engineering Fair on Feb. 15 in Thrash Gym. Students in grades 6-12 who have participated in a local science fair in their county or school and have been chosen to participate at the regional level will be involved.
Over 120 students from Thomas, Worth, Brooks, Lowndes, and Grady counties will participate in the science fair. Most participants will compete in the junior division which includes grades 6-8. There is a larger than normal senior division representation for this year’s fair with 57 students competing in grades 9-12. There are also four team projects in the senior division.
Projects will be entered in one of 16 different classifications such as behavioral and social sciences, physics and astronomy, animal sciences, plant sciences, and chemistry. Displays will be available for viewing by the public from 3 – 4 p.m.
The awards ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. in Howard Auditorium. Awards will be given to the top two finishers in both the junior and senior divisions.
