The weather is finally turning to Spring… so what’s up for the weekend?

At our house, the schedule is often packed with the kids’ sports and other activities and the weekends fly by too fast. But, maybe you can find time to squeeze in something different – the state science fair.

The Massachusetts State Science & Engineering Fair (MSSEF) for high school students is being held this Saturday, May 4 from 12:30 to 3:00 at MIT’s Johnson Athletics Center in Cambridge. It’s open to the public and it’s free.

At the fair, 300 of the “best of the best” high school science fair research and design projects will be on display from cities and towns across Massachusetts. This group of regional winners will present their projects to the judges at MIT to win $500,000 worth of scholarships and prizes.

Organizations such as MSSEF truly believe that these young scientists and engineers are the wave of the future, and put together an impressive event to showcase their efforts. Science and engineering fairs increase awareness of, exposure to, and participation in inquiry-based learning through the development of science and engineering projects. They then celebrate that learning through the science fair exhibition, judging, and awards. Read more.
