Science Fair 2018
Because middle and high school students sometimes need specific approvals before they can begin their research, we are holding a Science Fair Information Meeting for teachers on Thursday, September 7th from 5:00-6:30 pm at 590 Commerce Park Drive, Suite 140. In addition to tips on running a successful fair, we'll review all the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair (GSEF) forms necessary for projects using human subjects, vertebrates, hazardous or controlled substances, potentially hazardous biological agents, and human/animal tissues.
