Velva Hosts Science Fair

Posted: Updated:

Velva High School Hosted its third annual Regional Science Fair this afternoon.

The North Central region stretches from Minot to Grand Forks and up to the Canadian border.

Forty-four students from Velva, Sawyer, Our Redeemers, Leeds and Berthold competed for thirty-four spots at the state championship.

Olson explains that focus in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics helps prepare students.

(Vicki Olson, Velva High School Science Teacher) "And so anything that we can do at the local level, especially at smaller schools here in North Dakota. It helps prepare our kids for moving on to college and helps prepare them for their future."

Amongst other prizes and scholarships, students can also win a chance to travel and compete again in cities like Houston, Texas and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Any students or teachers interested in competing in future Science Fair Should seek information on the state science fair website at: und.edu/ndssef
