Mission Statement

GATEway Science Fair Mission:
  • To foster enthusiasm for science and an understanding of the scientific method of inquiry in young students in our community.
  • To provide a non-competitive setting where adult science professionals can guide and encourage young students, focusing on learning and personal growth rather than on prize-winning.
  • To promote an early, positive learning experience for all students in such areas as scientific literacy, self-confidence, presentation skills, originality, problem-solving, goal-setting, task-completion, and critical thinking.
