The Napa County Science Fair is an opportunity to celebrate the exploration and creativity of our 5-8 grade students in the area of science education. Participating students also have the opportunity to win excellent prizes donated by local businesses and organizations. Families are encouraged to attend.
The Napa County Maker Fair will partner with the Science Fair to provide a variety of hands-on activities for children of all ages who want to explore science. A hot dog lunch will be available for purchase, and Perfect Puree will have free tastings of their delicious juices. The Fair is also a wonderful opportunity for younger students to learn more about the Science Fair as future participants.
There are two ways to enter a project in the Science Fair:
Participating Napa County schools can submit 3 science fair projects per grade (completed by a single student or a team) that will be judged separately to represent their school. Schools are not required to hold a science fair to submit. All participants will be recognized for their efforts, and prizes will be given to the top-scoring students.
