If your 6-12 grade student has an interest in science, please have him or her check out the Santa Clara County Science Fair ( www.science-fair.org ).
I help with the administration of the fair, and have had many rewarding experiences watching the students explore new vistas. The next fair is March 11-12, 2008, at the San Jose Convention Center. Winners are eligible to attend the California State Science Fair in Los Angeles and the International Science and Engineering Fair (in Atlanta, GA this year). Now is the time to start planning!
