Event Information:

The GATEway Science
 Fair gives the 3rd through 6th grade participants an opportunity to meet and interact 
with scientists and other science professionals. We are looking for science professionals to review the projects and offer the students positive feedback to encourage their love of science. It is not a competition and there are no prizes. Each student receives a t-shirt, the written feedback from their reviewers, and a certificate of participation.
