Ashford University Student Group Plans Science Fair
Competition is open to local students from third grade through eighth grade
Part of Ashford University’s Ladd Science Building will be transformed into a gigantic science laboratory when Ashford’s Mu Sigma Eta organization hosts a Science Fair on Saturday, April 11.
Local students, from third grade through eighth grade, are invited to showcase their science projects from 10 a.m. until noon. The public is invited to view the students’ exhibits and demonstrations that, in the past, have included a wide variety of subjects, from volcanoes and astronomy to geology and animal behavior.
The competition will be divided into two divisions – grades 3-5 and grades 6-8 – with prizes being presented to the top entries in each division during an awards ceremony at 11:45 a.m. All entries will receive a certificate of participation.
Mu Sigma Eta is a campus group comprised of honor students from the fields of biology, chemistry, and mathematics. The group promotes the scientific development of its members. Admission is by faculty invitation only.
For more information on the science fair or to obtain a registration form, contact Lee Salazar at 563.242.4023, ext. 7865.
