The public is invited to meet the students and learn about their research. The event runs from 1:30 to 4:00 pm, with the judges’ decisions and People’s Choice announced at 3:15.

Young Greenwich scientists have excelled at state and national science competitions in the past few years, and the Science Fair is a chance to show your support for their efforts. This is an opportunity to see first-hand the teens’ innovative work. A great way to inspire the next generation of scientists.

Judges for Phenomenon: Innovation Science Fair, a small-scale science fair, include former Greenwich High science research teacher Ray Hamilton; Dr. Jang Kim, Assistant Research Professor, University of Connecticut; and Dr. Donald B. Hoffman Associate Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Laboratory Director at CT Clinical Services in New Haven, Connecticut.

The top two projects, based on scientific achievement as well as presentation, and a people’s choice selection will receive prize awards at 3:15 pm.  Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite work for the People’s Choice Award.
