Science Fair Needs Dollars, Reviewers

The Long Beach Unified School District’s Annual Science Fair is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 24 at Cabrillo High School. The science fair is the third largest in the nation and second largest in the state. The public event allows more than 1,300 students in grades K-12 to display their best science projects, while volunteer reviewers from local businesses and the community provide valuable feedback. In recent years, costs of the fair have been covered by donations. Currently the fair remains about $8,000 shy of its $25,000 fundraising goal. Organizers are accepting donations and volunteers to serve as science project reviewers. Last year, more than 470 volunteers participated. To donate or volunteer as a reviewer, contact the Science Office at 997-8000, ext. 2964.
