YING-TRISEF Science Fair

Saturday, March 11
SUNY Potsdam
44 Pierrepont Ave, Potsdam, New York 13676


Mrs. Wood has been able to secure funding from Dr. Nelson Ying to organize fairs all over the state so that no one has to travel too far to participate. Kids in grades 6-12 in Clinton, Essex, St. Lawrence, and Franklin Counties will now go to SUNY Potsdam for competitive science fair events that lead on to further competitions at the national level (prior to this, everyone had to go to Syracuse). For instance, this year's fair leads on to the Intel ISEF Science Fair in Los Angeles (https://student.societyforscience.org/intel-isef). 

Mrs. Wood is a former homeschool parent herself and so she has lots of info about how a science fair project can fulfill many subject areas on an IHIP. She would love to see TONS of homeschoolers participating. Though the fair is competitive, it's only as formal as you and your child would want to make it. You can even do a demonstration of a concept rather than a formal experiment. 

Registration is $15 and includes lunch, and every participant goes home with a t-shirt and backpack. The deadline for registering is Feb 10. Mary-Eileen would love to chat with anyone with any questions. She's very nice.
