Science Fair Website

Science Fair Director: Eva Abeyta

County Science fair next year will be held on January 18-19, 2019 at the Los Alamos Middle School.  A couple of points to keep in mind are:

1)  Summer is a great time to start thinking about a science fair project.

2)  There will be no late judging offered next year.

3)  Not all students will receive a monetary prize but will be guaranteed a wonderful t-shirt and a certificate of participation.

New Mexico Junior Academy of Science

Why participate in the Science Fair?
It is not only fun but gives students the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have and to add to that knowledge in a project that interests them. They are able to combine knowledge from different areas to make a complete project. This is not just practice but a real application to real world problems.
