CSU Hosting Regional Science and Engineering Fair

COLUMBUS, Ga. — Columbus State University will once again host the annual Columbus Regional Science and Engineering Fair for local middle school and high school students on Tuesday-Wednesday, Feb. 4-5.

Judging will be from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday at CSU’s Elizabeth Bradley Turner Center for Continuing Education, and the public is welcome to view entries, plus results, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday at the Turner center.

This year, 102 middle school and 42 high school students from Columbus are expected to participate. The fair is an opportunity for students to share research projects where they have learned how to isolate and solve problems within the framework of organized, logical thought and study.

Science fair projects cover biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental science, mathematics, medicine and physics. CSU professors are among the judges. Winners from the Columbus regional fair may go on to compete at the 66th Georgia Science and Engineering Fair in Athens on March 27-29.

CSU’s Math and Science Learning Center is staging the regional fair. Other sponsors are CSU’s Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Muscogee County School District and Columbus Phenix City Inventors Association.
