The Boulder Valley Regional Science Fair, sponsored by Roche Colorado, was held at the University of Colorado on February 26, 2011. Boulder Valley students came together to have their science projects showcased before judges, fellow students, parents, teachers and interested community members. The most outstanding projects were selected for further competition at state and national levels.
The science fair is a meeting place for both students and scientists. Here the students have the opportunity to exhibit their projects, share ideas with other students, and discuss their projects with scientists.
The four main purposes of the Regional Secondary Science Fair are...
- To stimulate student interest in all fields of science
- To give students an opportunity to learn first hand the process of scientific investigation
- To give students the opportunity to present and discuss their findings with other students and with scientists in the community
- To recognize and reward outstanding student work
Keeping with our involvement with local schools, in3 prepared the science fair’s display facility. in3 employees directed the set-up and breakdown of the materials and equipment used to display the projects for judging and viewing. In addition, in3 readied the registration and judging facilities. According to Jennifer Barr, the Roche Colorado / Boulder Regional Science Fair Director, “in3 played an integral role in the success of the 2011 Fair once again. Their enthusiastic and efficient teamwork benefited all who participated in this event.”
