Science Fair update!

Friday, February 27, 6-8pm @ Banks Middle School

We have joined forces with the Banks Middle School to bring you a new and improved Science Fair.  Same time and date, but we are moving our location to the Middle School where there is room for more science-goodness.  What to look forward to:

Student presentations
Egg Drop Challenge
Stomp Rockets
Rice Rock Museum
Balloon Rocket races
Brave Run Booth
Smencil Sales ($1 each)
Ice Cream Bars (50 cents each)

Elementary students participating in the science fair will still bring their experiments to BES for setup on Wednesday afternoon for judging/display at the school on Thursday.  They will be moved to the Middle School on Friday for the Science Fair.

See you there!
