The annual district science fair is fast-approaching, and this year, has been revamped to encourage students to reach beyond research and experimentation.
Scheduled for March 7, the newly named Surrey District Science and Innovation Fair is urging young participants to advance their learning and strive to design and create solutions to real-world problems.
While the science fair has always been fun, educators found that projects tended to be reproductions of popular past projects. Instead, students should be inspired to incorporate creative problem solving and expanding their thinking beyond a single scientific "event" such as a volcano explosion or plant dying.
Students will also have more choices in what type and style of presentation they display, and teachers will have access to "problems of the month" to maintain the momentum of science fair thinking throughout the year.
The Surrey District Science and Innovation Fair takes place March 7, 4-8 p.m. at Central City shopping centre (10153 King George Blvd.).
