Annual New Haven Science Fair
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. Nearly 600 students from 38 schools present 235 projects to judges and community members. Projects this year reflect current events about health issues, student learning, technology, the natural world, and the environment, as well as students’ own interests. More than 70 mentors worked with the students on projects, and nearly 170 judges from local universities, corporations, non-profit agencies and the community will be evaluating the projects. In addition, numerous schools held Family Science Nights throughout the year to engage parents and the community.
The New Haven Science Fair program is truly a partnership involving volunteer and financial support from businesses, universities, associations, foundations, and private citizens, working with the New Haven Public Schools’ teachers, students and administrators, and the students’ parents. Funding for the 2018 Fair comes from Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Boehringer Ingelheim (BI Cares Foundation), Bristol Myers Squibb, The Community Foundation of Greater New Haven, CRISP (SCSU),Liberty Bank Foundation, the Dennis Bornick Fund and the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven, New Haven Manufacturers Association, NEWALLIANCE Foundation, New Haven Public Schools, Pfizer Inc., Science Park Development Corporation, Yale University-Office of New Haven & State Affairs, and Yale Pathways to Science, Target and the Watershed Fund.
