What makes a volcano explode? How is static electricity produced? Why does a ping pong ball float and a penny sink in water? We invite all budding scientists to pick a science project and starting experimenting!

Participants choose a problem to study, formulate a hypothesis, conduct experiments at home, record data, draw conclusions and create an exhibit for the fair. Students will display their exhibits at the fair for friends, classmates and family to view. A real scientist will visit each display and discuss the project with students.

Visiting Scientists
Are you a scientist or do you know someone who is? We are looking for adult researchers and scientists to participate in the fair. Visiting Scientists will visit with a few student scientists during the fair, discuss the student’s project, and present the student with a certificate of achievement. Email sciencefair@bowmanpta.org if you are interested.
