Solano County students adept in the fields of science and engineering will have an opportunity to show off their skills.
Applications are now open for the 2021 Solano County Science and Engineering Fair competition, which will be held virtually.
The event aims to help students develop inquiry and problem-solving skills, spark a passion for science and engineering, and help the youth be better prepared to enter STEM fields and other associated areas.
“Now more than ever, it is vital that our elementary, middle, and high school students have an opportunity to apply science and engineering skills, investigate theories, gather and evaluate evidence, and develop their own intelligent conclusions,” Lisette Estrella- Henderson, Solano COunty superintendent of schools, said in a statement. “We hope this year’s science fair inspires more students to explore careers in science, engineering, or related fields.”
