A collection of projects, presentations and innovative ideas from the scientific minds of the future will be on display at the first annual Sheldon Regional Science Fair from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 15 at Sheldon High School in the cafeteria.  The theme for the event is “An Evening of Science Research.”

“The regional fair was created as part of a vision from a cohort of teachers in the Sheldon Region,” said Bob Fendall, chair of Sheldon’s science department.  “Our goal is to create a seamless K-12 science education.  One way to do that is to provide opportunities for students and families to see what is happening in the realm of science at all grade levels.  We invited one of our science partners, the University of California, Davis, to participate as well.”

The regional science fair will feature a variety of displays and presentations, including:
