When students walk around Western Nevada Community College Wednesday, they may notice that their fellow students are getting younger. Students as young as six years old, in fact, will be on campus for the fifth annual Carson City School District's Science Fair Awards Night on March 8 from 6-8 p.m.
Designed to foster an interest in science, engineering and math, the fair will highlight more than 100 winning projects from the students, ages 6-18. The youth will even get to participate in and observe various science demonstrations.
"Interest in this event continues to get larger, mainly because of the experiments kids get to partake in," said Mary Pierczynski, Carson City superintendent of schools. "We're always happy to come to WNCC because we have such a nice partnership."
This partnership allows a chance for young people to be introduced to an exciting world of science, which could eventually direct them toward one of the many interesting and well-paying careers in this field.
Student science displays will be available for viewing in the Aspen Building Sarah Winnemucca Hall from 5:45-6:15 p.m. Opening remarks and introductions will follow at 6:15 p.m. The group will then move to the lobby of the Bristlecone Building where hands-on demonstrations and science experiments will be conducted. Complimentary refreshments will also be available.
