The Anoka-Hennepin School District’s annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Fair will take place on Saturday, Jan. 19 at Anoka High School from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The fair provides an opportunity for students to showcase their inquiry skills and creative genius. With more than 1,000 students involved, Anoka-Hennepin’s fair is the largest of its kind in the state.
Judges are needed for the fair. Judges don’t need to be a science expert or have a science or math background to be a judge. Any responsible adult who is willing to give something back to the community is qualified to be a judge. Judges can register for the morning session, afternoon session or both.
The STEM Fair is a showcase of students doing authentic science at its highest level. There is no other opportunity like it in our district. Students participating in the fair learn to improve their critical thinking, public speaking and research skills.
Teachers can earn up to five CEUs. Fill out the online form and you will then receive a certificate in the mail. The certificate needs to be turned into your CEU committee to receive your hours.
