To all the parents, mentors, teachers, school administrators, donors, sponsors, and volunteers who made this past 2011–2012 science fair season possible:
The continued success of Hawaii’s student scientists is due to your time, attention, and support. Not only do you contribute to the education of these young minds, you’ve also given them the opportunity to participate in unique experiences with peers and professionals who share common interests and goals.
The 56th Hawai‘i State Science and Engineering Fair is on the horizon for 2013, but judging, mentoring, volunteering, sponsorship and donor support are always welcome and needed for the science fair program to continue. If you would like to participate in any capacity with your time, dollars, or resources, please contact us. Also, feel free to share our website with others who would like to invest in Hawai‘i greatest resource, our keiki.
The Hawai‘i Academy of Science thanks all the hard working individuals and organizations participating in science fair community for making this past season possible. We look forward to working with everyone again as we begin the 2012–2013 science fair season.
