Regional Science Fair

Hosted by Southern Wesleyan University

March 14, 2014


Registration deadline: February 28, 2014

Science fairs provide an opportunity for students, 3rd through 12th grades, who are interested in science and technology to pursue their personal areas of interest and to display their research as a presentation in a public competitive forum. The Regional Science Fair at Southern Wesleyan University serves the counties of Pickens, Oconee, and Anderson and works to create enthusiasm in science and technology through project-based inquiry. The fair gives area students the chance to compete for cash awards and other prizes.
