The fair, which was founded in 2015, gives children in grades K – 12, in the Fairmont, WV community (and North Central West Virginia and beyond) the opportunity to follow the Scientific Method in creating an experiment-based project.
We believe our community science fair unites school children across our region, regardless of school designation, economic status, or STEM ability.
