For all of the schools in our county, we have combined Science Fair with Invention Convention to allow students a broader choice. Also, we have History Fair one year with Science-Invention Fair the following year because students were being overwhelmed have everything in one year.
That’s good to know, Rich. Thanks for sharing that. When is History Fair? Maybe I can spotlight that also.
Thank you, Jacqui!! I love it when people travel back in the Archives!
I have so many examples of students inspired by this event. It’s a winner!
Here’s a link to the California History Fair
The theme changes annually. The theme for 2021 to 2022 is “Debate and Diplomacy in History” We have our History Fair around the beginning of Spring.
