District 300 Science Fair Update

In the interest of the health and safety of our students, staff, and community members, District 300 has decided to modify the annual science fair event (initially scheduled for February 17th, 2021). In lieu of an in-person science fair event, this year students will be completing their science fair projects and presentations in the classroom. Top projects from each high school will be identified and may be eligible to advance to the next level of science fair. 
The district will create a video honoring the science fair and our student's hard work. This science fair video will be shared through social media in the spring. We are excited to share some of the great student projects in a safe way so others can enjoy the science fair in some way this school year. We know that even though the event is modified, no one can take away the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that students are gaining from participating in this project!
If you are a parent of a student participating in the science fair, please reach out to your student's classroom teacher for additional information.
