Teachers: Help us improve Science Fair 101!
With the support of educators like you, we have been able to bring Science Fair 101 presentations to students all over the Bay Area!
At this time, we are re-evaluating this program to ensure it still meets the current and future needs of parents, students, administrators, and teachers. In order to do this, we first need your insight on the ways in which we can better align the program with your goals by completing the survey below.
