Science fair a chance to prepare for future – Daily Republic

By Bill Hicks

More than 200 students from Armijo High School and Grange Middle School gathered Friday inside the Armijo High gym to participate in a science fair that was part friendly competition and part preparation for the future.

The Armijo High participants, all pre-International Baccalaureate (IB) students, used the fair as a way to practice for the demanding lab component of the IB program. The Grange students got a bit of additional preparation for possible inclusion in the IB program, as well as a way to stack themselves up against their high school counterparts.

One element of this science fair was the inclusion of a number of science professionals. Scientists might ordinarily be involved with judging projects, but in this case they were there to talk to students about professional options in science.
