On February 19, 2016, Library 21c will be hosting a Homeschool Science Fair open to grades K-12! The Fair will be held from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. in the Venue. The Homeschool Science Fair will allow your student(s) to show off and demonstrate a science project for other homeschool families! This event is noncompetitive, and is meant to be an opportunity for homeschooled students to present their projects to other students and families. There are no strict rules or guidelines regarding the science projects and we will leave planning up to the individual family.

Registration is required for each student wishing to present a project. You can register online here or call Kristin Brown 719-531-6333 x 2404. If you have a group of students who would like to present together, please contact Kristin for registration.

Registration will begin December 1. All students planning to present must register by midnight on Friday, February 5.
