Santa Barbara County Science Fair Slated for Friday

Public viewing will be available from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The 56th Annual Santa Barbara County Science Fair will be held Friday, March 4 in UCSB’s Corwin Pavilion.

The fair will be open for public viewing from 4 p.m. until the awards ceremony begins at 7 p.m.

This year’s fair will bring together more than 140 students from across Santa Barbara County for a day of competition and camaraderie. At stake is more than $3,000 in prizes as well as advancement to the California State Science Fair on May 2-3.

In addition to the competition, students will get a chance to see cutting-edge research as they take part in the Science Expo presented by the California NanoSystems Institute.

The Santa Barbara County Science Fair is organized by a volunteer committee and supported by local organizations, including donations from the Institute for Energy Efficiency, Raytheon and the Science and Engineering Council of Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
