Wayne County Public Schools will hold its annual districtwide science fair on Saturday, for students who have competed and won local fairs at their individual schools.

Held at Meadow Lane Elementary School. Judging will end at 11:30 a.m. and then the event will be open to the public at noon.

The science fair will have a K-2 classroom division, a 3-5 division, a middle school division and a high school division.

Middle and high school divisions will be divided into earth, life, physical and technological areas, and there is a team division in high school.

Twelve award recipients will progress to the regional science fair in Wilmington on Feb. 20.

"Schools work hard to offer students creative ways to become excited about science and its impact on the world around them," said Dr. Ralph Smith, the school system's lead teacher for science. "The annual district science fair allows students to put their scientific skills to the test and gives students who have winning exhibits a chance to compete in larger competitions."
