Secondary Science Fairs occurred throughout the District during the month of February. We have three science fairs for secondary students: Intracoastal, Mainland, and South regions.
As always, there were many talented students present, presenting on a wide variety of topics, from Robotics to Plant Sciences. Over 25 students were awarded scholarships from the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT). These scholarships typically range from $72,000 - $80,000.
Many of the first-place winners from the Fairs will go on to compete at the State Science Fair in Lakeland, FL, to be held April 4-6. Best-of-Show winners have already secured an all-expense paid trip to Dallas, TX for the International Science and Engineering Fair being held May 13-19.
Awards are given out in 13 total categories to the 1st through 5th place winners, and other special recognition awards are also bestowed on participants. To read the full lists of winners, see links below:
