Region’s best student science and engineering projects will be on display


COLUMBUS, Ga. --- Columbus State University will once again host the Columbus Regional Science and Engineering Fair for local middle school and high school students on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at CSU’s Cunningham Center. Judging will be from 6-8 p.m.

This year, approximately 131 middle and high school students from many Columbus schools will be participating. The fair is an opportunity for students to display the results of research projects that they have conducted during the semester. Students learn how to isolate problems and solve them within the framework of organized, logical thought and study.

Science fair projects cover a range of disciplines, including biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental science, mathematics, medicine and physics. Projects are judged by members of the CSU community and other interested individuals from the region. Winners from the Columbus Regional Fair may go on to compete at the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair in Athens from March 31 – April 2.

Projects can be viewed by the general public on Wednesday, Feb. 3 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Cunningham Center, 3100 Gentian Blvd.

The fair is sponsored by CSU’s College of Letters and Sciences. For more information, contact Janet Jamieson at 706-507-8464 or Jamieson_Janet@ColumbusState.edu.
