SCC to host 30th annual Science Fair

Salem Community College will host the 30th annual Chambers Works Salem County Science Fair on Friday, March 8 in Davidow Hall.  

The event features 300 fifth through twelfth graders. The Fair allows them to apply what they have learned in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education.  Participants concentrate on an area of special interest, collecting and analyzing data while following the scientific method.  The 2019 topics include: “Will a Vacuum Stop Food from Going Stale?,” “Which is More Intelligent: Cat or Dog,” “Does Free Shipping Make an Item Sell Better?” and many more.    

Students also practice public speaking and presentation skills during an interview with the judges.  Teachers and professionals from area businesses serve as judges.  Winners will compete for over $6 million in scholarships at the Delaware Valley Science Fair on April 3.  

Students from the following school districts will participate: Alloway, Elsinboro, Lower Alloways Creek, Mannington, Oldmans, Penns Grove-Carneys Point, Pennsville, Pittsgrove, Quinton, Salem, Salem County Special Services, Salem County Vocational-Technical Schools, Upper Pittsgrove and Woodstown-Pilesgrove.

The Chambers Works Science Fair is made possible by Chemours, DuPont and Salem Community College.
