Diocesan science fair Feb. 25

The third annual Diocese of Oakland Science Fair for middle school students will be Feb. 25 at St. Joseph Notre Dame High School’s Anthony V. Aiello Science Center.

Seventh- and eighth-grade students from 44 diocesan schools have been invited to participate. Local college and university science educators, as well as representatives from the tech industry and the Bay Area’s scientific community, will serve as judges for the competition.

The winners will have the opportunity to compete in the Alameda County Science and Engineering Fair or the San Francisco Bay Area Science Fair. Last year, 34 of the more than 130 entrants went on to compete at the San Francisco Bay Area Science Fair.

Todd Porter, then an eighth-grader at Holy Spirit School in Fremont, won a third-place award in electronics in his age group at the 2011 California State Science Fair.

More than 500 people attended the science fair on the Alameda campus last year. As it did last year, the science fair competition will include science exhibits and demonstrations throughout the afternoon.
