2020 Ecology Science Fair

Saturday, February 8

Students stand in front of their poster presentation

The Ecology Science Fair centers on student-driven investigations in ecology, encouraging students to engage in all steps of the research process, including the important final step of data presentation.

For the past 22 years, the Ecology Science Fair has provided a forum for elementary, middle school and high school students to present their original research. Students conduct research in their classrooms, homes and schoolyards, and then share their findings with other students, teachers and scientists in this annual celebration of student achievement.
