The Annual Island Wide Science Fair is now in its 46th 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 pursue science-based careers. Careers involving medicine, nursing, architecture, agriculture, engineering, computer technologies, innovation, energy, material sciences, product development, and many more that contribute to our overall evolutionary progress.
Research has shown that Universities accept students that have completed science fair projects more often than those who have not. Not only do colleges prefer these kinds of student applicants that are proactively engaging in scientific activities and the wider community, but those students tend to complete their college educations more often than other students who have not had such experiences. This is one of the reasons we feel that hosting science fairs are worth our time, effort and investment.
