Western Colorado Elementary Science Fair (3-5th Grade)

Annual Western Colorado Elementary Science Fair

Calling all future scientists and engineers! EUREKA! and D51 are partnering to host our annual elementary science fair! Here’s your chance to apply your love of STEM by creating and conducting your own scientific investigation. All participants will get the opportunity to display a scientific poster to the public and a panel of judges, who will select 3 winners from each grade. Students may enter as an individual or team of 3 or less.

Public Viewing and Round 1 of judging will take place from 2PM-6PM on Wednesday, 2/19/2020. Student attendance is optional, as round 1 of judging is based completely on the poster.
