Matt Martin, a PTO volunteer, managed and coordinated the Science Fair. He recruited two judges to evaluate the approximately 30 student projects. He also supplied trophies for the top three projects of each grade, plus two ‘Student Choice’ awards.
The Science Fair was open for participation to all students in third to sixth grades. On the day of the Science Fair, all students in second through sixth grade had an opportunity to walk through the gym and see the Science Fair displays made by their classmates.
