A Science Fair is where students present their science project results in the form of a report, display board, and models or experiments that they have created. The Ashby Science Fair allows students in grades 7-8 and 9-10 to compete in science activities while learning valuable science facts. Many Ashby students have been working on their projects since January.
In the United States, science fairs first became popular in the early 1950s. Interest in the sciences was at a new high after the world witnessed the use of the first two atomic weapons and the dawn of television. As the decade progressed, science stories in the news, such as Jonas Salk’s vaccine for polio and the launch of Sputnik, brought science fiction to reality and attracted increasing numbers of students to fairs.
The Ashby High School Science Fair was held on Monday, March 21 in the big gym at school. Grades 7 and 8 presented their projects and were judged in the morning while students in grades 9 and 10 displayed their projects and were judged in the afternoon. The Science Fair was open to the public from 4:00-7:00 p.m. An awards presentation was held at 7:00 p.m.
