Academy at the Lakes 2017 Science Fair and Invention Convention Results

Months of hard work by 8th – 10th Grade students and faculty culminated on Tuesday, Dec. 5 with the Academy Science Fair that took place in the Gym.

4th Graders traveled to McCormick campus to view the projects and speak to the Middle and Upper Division students.

Judges rotated the room and interviewed students before determining the Invention Convention and Science Fair finalists. The Invention Convention finalists will be competing in the 3M Invention Competition and the Science Fair finalists will be moving on to the Pasco Regional Science and Engineering Fair.
