Science Fair will focus on the outdoors

Outdoor Science: That's the theme for this year's Sisters Science Fair - and it's an apt topic for considering countless outdoor recreation opportunities in Sisters Country. The Science Fair is scheduled for Saturday, March 17, at Sisters High School from noon to 4 p.m.

This community-wide event appeals to people of all ages to stroll through the high school and observe, ask questions and participate in the many hands-on exhibits. Students and adult volunteers will be walking around wearing buttons that say "ASK ME! What? How? Why?"

At the Science Fair, everyone is encouraged to join in the magic of science to learn and have fun.

"Plan to spend plenty of time at the fair looking at and participating in all of the many displays and hands-on experiments from the Sisters schools, community businesses, universities and statewide organizations," said Cal Allen, director of the Sisters Science Fair. "It's amazing and exciting for all ages and especially for families to experience the Science Fair together. We've grown every year because of the increased participation and word-of-mouth enthusiasm shared throughout the community and beyond. There were over 800 people last year walking throughout the high school making it such an electric event where parents, kids and community members can discover the wonders and importance of science."

Healthy living and green energy programs will have displays, from greenhouse gardening to organic vegetables in the local Seed-To-Table program. The planetarium will be set up and students, teachers, and astronomy volunteers will be on hand to explain the night sky. A 3-D printer will be there to astonish the imagination.

The 2018 Design, Construct, Compete (DCC) Challenge will feature balloon car competitions. Registration forms and rules are available for downloading at the Sisters Science Club website at www.sistersscienceclub.org.

Rules for the popular Science Fair SciArt contest are also available at the Sisters Science Club

website.

The success of the Sisters Science Fair depends on its many volunteers willing to help set up, answer questions and steer visitors in the right direction. For more information contact Barbara Bott at bottb1@gmail.com.
