Science Fair / Family Science Night 2018

Science Fair: March 22-23 

Family Science Night: March 22 (5:30-8:30 pm)

Families, get ready for the Escondido Science Fair and prepare to be impressed by our students’ presentations of an amazing multitude of science projects! In addition, we will be holding our 6th Annual Family Science Night for families of all grades, K-5.

As a Parent/Guardian, How Can I Be Involved?

Open the world of science to your budding scientist’s eyes, practice life skills of curiosity, organization and perseverance, and satisfy Developmental Assets all at the same time. We encourage you to guide your scientist as they complete the project themselves. The Escondido Science Fair and Family Discovery Night is not a competition and all students are invited to participate. Student support is available through the "Ask a Scientist" program. Every Wednesday at noon from January 24-March 20, Stanford PhD students will be at Escondido to help students with project ideas and questions.
