Science Benefit Carnival Was Really Fun!

Thank you to everyone who attended our benefit science night! The money raised by the SAB will go toward running the fair this year! We all had fun trying all sorts of science experiments, eating ice cream & learning new things. If you missed this year, be sure to come next year. You won't regret it.

If you would like to see photos from the evening, click here. We also have the hand-out sheets available for you to download & try the experiments at home.

A huge thank you to Salt Lake Center for Science Education for hosting this event.

NEW Science Fair Guide

The Student Advisory Board wrote a wonderful guide giving insight into participating in SLVSEF from the student's perspective. It includes details for how to choose a project, keeping a journal, making a great display board, and a review of the judging process.

The guide was designed by Mirae Parker, Michelle Wei, Bovey Rao, Naveen Rathi, Brandon Cui, and Nityam Rathi, who were all members of the 2013-2014 Salt Lake Valley Science and Engineering Fair Student Advisory Board.
