Dear Scientists!

At last, here are the participants in the 2018 P.S. 130 Science Fair! Everyone is a winner, and with that in mind we will not award trophies this year. I do want to acknowledge those who have gone above and beyond in making sure their entries were unique, organized, and insightful! Special thanks to Pre-K and all of the teachers that go out of their way to produce class projects, and encourage their students to participate every year. Stay tuned for information about the first annual District 15 Science Fair on May 10, 2018! THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ANOTHER EXCITING SCIENCE FAIR!
