Student scientists exhibit at STEM Fair

This April, more than 400 MPS students from 42 schools hopped off yellow school buses carrying display boards, science experiments, inventions, and equipment to compete in the annual MPS STEM Fair. A team of 50 volunteers and 130 judges were ready to help them set up displays and judge their projects.

Student work ranged from practical inventions to solve everyday problems to experiments designed around scientific principles. Projects were divided into three categories: Science Inquiry (traditional), Engineering Design (solving a problem), and Research Study (high school only, for complex projects).

A contest was held for students to design a logo for this year’s STEM Fair. One winner and three honorable mentions were recognized during the awards ceremony.

STEM Fair was made possible by numerous community partners, including Discovery World.

Congratulations to all our winners! A complete list of winners appears below.
