45TH HIGH PLAINS REGIONAL SCIENCE FAIR TO BE HELD FRIDAY, MARCH 24
The 45th Annual High Plains Regional Science & Engineering Fair will be held Friday, March 24 on the campus of the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T). There are over 400 participants including approximately 330 entries in this year’s competition from grades 6 through 12.
Schools participating come from southwestern South Dakota. Counties that will be represented include Butte, Lawrence, Pennington, Custer, Fall River, Meade, Shannon, Haakon, Jackson,, Mellete, Bennett and Todd.
The critical portion of a science fair is when teams of judges meet the young scientists and engineers at their displays to discuss their work. The judges learn from the participants, and the participants hopefully come away from the interviews with positive attitudes towards what they have been able to accomplish, a better understanding of science and/ or engineering, and with innovative ideas about how they could advance their work.
Participants will be able to set- up their projects on Thursday between 7: 30 am - 9: 00 pm in the Surbeck Student Center Ballroom, and King Center Gymnasium. Judging of the projects will take place Friday from 9: 30 am - 12: 00 pm, and the event will be open to the public from 3: 00 - 5: 00 pm. An awards ceremony will take place at 3: 30 pm in the King Center Gymnasium.
