Students Participate in District Science Fair

Students Participate in District Science Fair

About 250 students in grades 3-12 participated in the Bibb County District Science Fair on Friday, December 9, at Macon State College.

"The Science Fair is an important science competition that helps students see and experience the processes used to explore questions and find answers to problems," said Dr. Jo-ne Bourassa, the District's Science Coordinator. "The National Science Education standards, as well as the Georgia Performance Standards, stress the importance of scientific literacy and the habits which come from scientific investigation, and this is a perfect opportunity for the students to demonstrate these habits and skills."
