Dungarvin Indiana Science Fair

The first Dungarvin Indiana Science Fair was held on April 12th at the Indianapolis World Sports Park and it was a huge success!

 
The excitement in the air was buzzing as guests were examining, listening, and learning about all the unique science projects. “Oohs!” and “Ahhs!” were audible around the room as the groups put on their presentations for each guest. Each guest received two voting tokens and were able to vote for whichever two science experiments they enjoyed the most. The guests learned about exciting topics like non-Newtonian materials, how to make a crystal gardens, and much more! We would like to say thank you to all of the groups that entered projects into the science fair; we couldn’t have made it such a success without you. Check out more photos from the activity below:
