National Science Fair ends

The national science fair ended on a successful note at the Derek Walcott Square on Friday, March 18, 2016, organizers have said.

The fair was preceded by eight district events from which fifty one of the best projects from various schools were selected to be showcased at the national level.

Acting Curriculum Officer for Natural Sciences, Giannetti George, told the Times that the national science fair was presented in three categories – Infant, Primary, Secondary and Tertiary.



George disclosed that projects pertaining to the environment, science and games were on display.

She noted that a new coconut category was initiated by the Coconut Rehabilitation Project, out of an interest in revitalizing the local coconut industry.

Longstanding sponsors, Lucelec, the Saint Lucia Manufacturers Association and Monroe College were on board this year along with others like Winfresh and Paradise Water.

George asserted:

“You cannot help but be impressed with the enthusiasm, the love and the commitment that the children demonstrated, from the youngest to the oldest. Science is very much alive in Saint Lucia.”
