The members of the FASF board of directors are thrilled to be planning an in-person Science Fair once again for February 26, 2023!
For the last two fairs, we adapted to the pandemic by going all virtual. Now we are keeping some things that worked well about the virtual format AND we are excited to celebrate students’ work in person again.
You’ll find information about all aspects of the in-person 2023 Fair on this website. Feel free to contact us with any questions at FortAtkinsonScienceFair@gmail.com.
