UNTHSC GRADUATE STUDENT ASSOCIATION HOSTS SECOND ANNUAL SCIENCE FAIR


The Graduate Student Association hosts the second annual invitational science fair on March 12 at the University of North Texas Health Science Center Atrium of the Education and Administration Building.

The science fair is open to Fort Worth middle school and high school students from Eastern Hills, Paschal, Dunbar, Northside, South Hills and Carter Riverside High Schools, as well as St. Rita and J.P. Elder Middle Schools.

“The purpose of the science fair is to show local students that science is important and it’s fun,” said Erin Donovan, secretary of the Graduate Student Association and organizer of the fair.

Awards will be for one winner and two runners-up in the middle school and high school categories. First place in each category will win an Xbox, and two runners-up in each category will win a $50 gift certificate. Judges for the competition will be Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences students.

There is no cost to participate in the event, and all participants will receive a participation prize. Breakfast and lunch will also be provided to student participants.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. on March 12, and culminate with an awards ceremony from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. later that day. Judging will take place from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
