On March 7, 2015, we hosted our first Science Fair. Students in grades 2 through 6 were invited to explore whatever scientific questions they desired and share their research, experiments or findings with the community here at the library. More than twenty students participated, with as many projects, covering everything from the theory of the multiverse to which angle of ramp made for the most awesome snowboard jumps†. There are more pictures of this event on our facebook page.
