The Rockdale community will have a chance to put its ingenuity and problem solving methods on display as it will get together to determine the best science mind.
Students from grades 6-12 from public schools, private schools and home schools in Rockdale County will be able to participate in the Rockdale Regional Science and Engineering Fair on Jan. 28.
“By completing a scientific research project, students learn how to apply the scientific method by solving problems using an organized, logical and methodical process,” said Mary Ann Suddeth, Rockdale Regional Science and Engineering Fair Director.
In order for students to apply the scientific method funds must be applied to the fair. Funds are sought to cover expenses of ribbons, trophies, plaques, certificates, supplies and lunch for the volunteer judges.
Also, the Rockdale Regional Science and Engineering Fair is responsible for paying all registration and travel expenses for students who become eligible to advance to the state and International Science Fairs.
All students who receive a first place award will advance to the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair, which takes place on March 31 through April 2. Up to two grand champions will advance to the International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles on May 8-13..
Suddeth is hoping to raise approximately $9,000 for the Rockdale Regional Science and Engineering Fair.
