Students in seventh through twelfth grade who want to improve problem-solving, communication, collaboration, and quantitative skills by doing an authentic science project, won't want to miss the Science Project Ideas for Science Fair and iSTEM Open House on Saturday, September 17, 8 to 11 am at Scullen Middle School. This is an opportunity for all students to connect with experts in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and receive ideas for meaningful projects in a wide range of STEM areas.

~Science Theatre by SciTech Museum at 8:30, 9:30 and 10:30 am.
