NUTLEY, NJ - There is still time to sign up to participate in the 2019 Nutley Academic Booster Club Science Fair taking place at Nutley High School on March 16 at Nutley High School.  

"The Science Fair is a great opportunity to enhance your child's STEM education in a low-risk, high-reward environment," says Tricia McKinney, Nutley Academic Booster Club President. "Students can find a science spin on their favorite hobbies--like sports or baking or video games, or they can use this as an opportunity to learn something brand new--from subatomic particles to how galaxies are formed. The range of projects we see every time we hold the Science Fair is astounding and inspiring."

Students can sign up to do individual exhibits or work in groups of up to four students. Judges will score each project and award prizes to the top three scorers at each grade level.
