The 2008-2009 New Haven Schools Science Fair Was Held on May 12, 13, 14 at Woolsey Hall, Yale Commons. JOIN US! Next Year! May 11-13th
15th Annual New Haven Science Fair
at Commons Hall, Yale University
May 12-14th, 2009 - Grades PreK-12
The New Haven Science Fair Program (formerly the Olin-Yale-Bayer-New Haven Public School Science Fair) was started in 1995 with seven test schools. This past year over 7000 New Haven students and 43 schools participated, utilizing more than 160 volunteers for mentoring and judging. The program is dedicated to improve the quality of education, and particularly science and math education in the New Haven Public Schools Grades Pre-K through 12.
The New Haven Science Fair Program is truly a partnership involving businesses, universities, associations, foundations, and private citizens, working with the public schools' teachers, students, and administrators, and the students' parents. The goal of the program is to work with children and teachers from Pre-K to 12, to help them carry out investigative hands-on science fair projects, in order to promote skills in critical thinking, science process and communication
Funding for the Program this year comes from New Haven Public Schools, Yale University, Sigma Xi Yale Chapter, Covidien, Watershed Fund of the Regional Water Authority, Bayer Healthcare, The United Illuminating Company, Fusco Management Company LLC, Science Park Development Corporation, G.M. Leahy, M.J. Spannuth, and the Dennis Bornick Fund.
