Sunrise Elementary Student Science Fair

Thursday, Feb. 25th, 5:30-7:30pm

14603 East 24th Avenue

Spokane Valley, WA

Come see all the student science fair exhibits.

Our community science presenter's night was held on January 28, 2016. A variety of businesses and organizations had exhibits and demonstrations on how science is related to their jobs. This was a wonderful experience for students and families to see how science is everywhere. The science presenter's night is always held a month prior to the student science fair as a way to peak their interest and generate a variety of ideas. Thank you to Heidi Murphy for being the chairperson for this event along with our PTO board.
