40th Annual Plank South Science Fair!!!

We are pleased to announce that the 40th Annual Plank Road South Science Fair will be held on Wednesday March 20th, 2019.

The purpose of the Science Fair is to promote interest in science related topics. The Science Fair provides the opportunity for all students to have fun while learning a scientific principle. The real reward is the knowledge gained, and in that respect, all students are winners.

All entry forms must be turned in by Monday February 11, 2019. Titles to projects and parent/guardian e-mail addresses must be included on the entry form to be accepted. Late entries cannot be accepted, as planning and procurement are crucial to the Science Fair’s success.

Here is the link to the full explanation of the Science Fair.
