Awards Day began with our 2nd Annual Science Fair Open House and Public viewing. Over 100 people joined in on our lab tours and demonstrations hosted by some of our amazing UFV faculty and students. Geography, Science Rocks! and the Super Science Club had some great hands on activities for everyone. In between shows, our visitors were able to view all of the science fairs projects on display.
