Who wants to do a Science Fair Project?  High school and middle school students and parents can learn all about it at these free clinics sponsored by the Akron-Summit County Public Library, the Akron Council of Engineering and Scientific Societies (ACESS), and the NEOH STEM Alliance.  Using a combination of pre-selected videos, live Zoom meetings, and discussions with scientists and science fair experts, we will meet virtually to explore the ins and outs of scientific research, project planning, reporting out, and more.  Attend one or attend all the sessions.

Learn the what/ why/ and how of science fair projects. Watch two pre-recorded videos on our YouTube channel between Thursday, September 10, and Wednesday September 23, then join our live Zoom meeting on Wednesday, September 23 at 4 pm for a short presentation and a chance to get your planning and research questions answered live.

This is a free, virtual program taking place via Zoom. A Zoom link and instructions will be emailed to all registrants the week of the program.
