On Saturday, March 20th, WVU Tech will play host to the Central and Southern West Virginia Regional Science and Engineering Fair and Creative Arts Competition.
Students can participate in the following categories; investigatory projects, display projects, art exhibits, submitted paper, symposium and Olympiad Events.
In the investigatory projects division, students perform an experiment and then create a display explaining the experiment and its results. Winners in this division also have the opportunity to win a trip to the International Science Fair and Engineering Fair in San Jose, California, in May.
