IUSD’s 32nd annual District Science Fair to be held at Woodbridge High School in February


“Will The Infrared Light Emitted By The Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) Affect The Color Sorting Sensors At Candy Factories?”

“The Effect Of Transforming Ampicillin-Resistant And Kanamycin-Resistant Plasmids On The Percentage Of E.coli That Is Double Resistant To Ampicillin And Kanamycin”

“Who Has More Bacteria In Their Mouth – A Human Or A Dog?”

These are all projects from last year’s District Science Fair, and we’re pretty sure we understand the premise of one of them, though we’re not saying which one.

Nevertheless, we’ll be excited to see what curious Irvine students come up with for IUSD’s 32nd annual District Science Fair, which will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at Woodbridge High School.

The 2013 edition will once again be brought to you by the generous support of the Broadcom Foundation and the Irvine Public Schools Foundation, and parents are encouraged to check with their child’s school or science teacher to learn more about the requirements and deadlines.

While you’re at it, you may want to check in with the Orange County Science & Engineering Fair as your young scientist is preparing his or her entry. Note that students must participate in the District Science Fair and meet the following criteria to be eligible to register for the OCSEF:

  • All 6th through 8th grade Division Award Winners (Blue Ribbons) ONLY may register for OCSEF. Note: Entries from 6th through 8th grade are limited by the County and spots will be allocated on an equitable basis across IUSD’s elementary and middle schools.
  • All 9th through 12th grade students who participated in the IUSD Science Fair may register for OCSEF, regardless of what ribbon they won.
  • Both individual projects and group projects may be submitted for Grades 7 through 12.
  • Your science teacher must approve your entry.

Good luck to all of this year’s participants.
