The Annual Island Wide Science Fair is now in its 45th year. The purpose of the fair is to stimulate an interest in science in our youth and in the Guam Community in order to encourage students to become interested in careers in science. Careers in medicine, nursing, architecture, agriculture, engineering, computer technologies, innovation, energy, material sciences, product development, and many other careers are rooted in science.
Research has shown that Universities accept students that have completed science fair projects more often than those who have not completed science fair projects. Not only do colleges accept the students more often who have completed science projects and participated in science fairs, but those students tend to complete their college educations more often than other students who have not had the science project experiences. This is one of the reasons we feel that science fairs are worth our time and effort.
