Science Fair Starts Today

by Rillene R. E. Nielsen

If you had walked into the SFJH library today you might have thought you’d wandered into a science museum.  And in a way, you’d be right.  Science Fair is in full swing at Spanish Fork Junior.

Ninth grade science students, along with eighth-grade honors science students, were busy setting up and explaining their projects to this year’s judges.  We don’t know who the winners are yet, so check back for updates.
