Science Fair display

Join us to Learn about Participating in Science & Engineering Fairs
USD 497 will host two Science & Engineering Fair Grades 4-12 Informational Nights from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on November 11 and 12 at KU's Natural History Museum, 14th and Jayhawk Boulevard. We invite Grades 4-12 students, their parents and teachers to attend one of these events to learn about participating in a local school Science Fair, the Greater Kansas City Science & Engineering Fair or the State of Kansas Regional Fair, and opportunities to enter higher-level fairs. Learn about required forms and be introduced to the KU STEM Mentor Partnership. We hope to see you at the museum on November 11 or 12. Read more about these Science Fair opportunities.
