The Newport Schools Science Fair is an annual event that celebrates science by:
    • Engaging students in hands-on science activities in school,
    • Giving students, teachers and scientists an opportunity to work together and learn from each other, and
    • Sponsoring an event where students can share their scientific findings with the community. 

    Students in Grade K-5 classrooms participate in Science Fair in even-ended years (like this year, 2018)
    Students in Grade 6-8 classrooms participate in Science Fair in odd-ended years (like last year, 2017)
    Independent project submissions from youth in grades K-8 are accepted every year.

    Beginning in January, students in grades K-5 at Yaquina View School and Sam Case School will be engaged in focused science activities at school with their teachers and with the help of volunteer science mentors. Students will be asking questions, making observations, testing ideas and describing their findings. Everyone is invited to come see their findings and engage in hands on Family STEM activities in March at the two Science Fair events:

    Yaquina View (K-2) Science Fair March 8, 2018 5:00pm - 7:00pm
    Sam Case (Gr. 3-5) Science Fair March 22, 2018 5:30pm - 7:00pm 

    MENTORS: Please take this post-event SURVEY

    Oregon Sea Grant and Lincoln County School District coordinators help organize the Science Fair in partnership with school staff and administrators.  Science Mentors are adults from the community who volunteer in classrooms to advise students on their investigations.
