Science Fair

The Brook Knoll Science and Engineering Fair is an event designed to foster the love of science and engineering. Throughout the process (December - February) kids learn more about the scientific method and experimental or engineering design. Volunteers and scientists from the community offer guidance through inquiry question and notebook reviews and after school question and answer sessions. Then, the kids proudly present their scientific passions and results of their hard work to their peers, parents and volunteer judges. Students can then go on to represent Brook Knoll at the Santa Cruz County Fair.
