The SFX Middle School Science Fair takes place annually. Students in 6th-8th grade spend several months planning, preparing, and executing a science experiment and present findings through a Keynote presentation to judges. The event culminates in the display of all projects and a brief awards ceremony. In addition to the acquisition of core science skills, students also grow in their ability to organize information, to write with fluency and clarity, and to present content orally with confidence.
Each year, select entries are recommended for participation on the regional level. From there, students may also be selected to advance to competition at the State Science Fair.
