The 2015 Southwestern Community College Science Fair!

    On April 15, we will hold the Southwestern Community College Science Fair in the Burrell Conference Center.

Do you tinker?  Do you build?  Do you engineer?  Do you wonder?  Do you like to ask questions?  Do you marvel in amazement at the beauty of the natural world?  Well, what are you waiting for?!  The Southwestern Community College Science Fair is the perfect opportunity to put your skills and inquisitive nature to good use!  The Science Fair is an opportunity for you to research, create and apply your ideas and share the results with the college, educate your community, and win prizes and recognition from the college. 

This year we are excited about the addition of an entirely new category.  The Scientific Photography category is your opportunity to show off not just your scientific knowledge, but also your artistic talent.  To find out more information about this new category visit the rules and regulations quick link on the right.

This contest is open to all students of Southwestern Community College and associated Early Colleges. This includes but is not limited to Jackson and Macon county campuses of SCC as well as the Jackson County Early College, Macon County Early College and Blue Ridge Early College. The registration deadline for the fair is Wednesday, April 1, 2015. A detailed schedule of the event can be found below.  For complete rules and regulations, and the registration form please see the quick links to the right.

So, stop spinning your wheels.  There is science to be done!  Register today!

Good luck, the judges are looking forward to seeing your entries!!!
