Big Walnut High School science teacher Matt Wallschlaeger said Big Walnut is one of few school districts in the state that has had a continuous science fair for the past 50-plus years; and this year’s science fair will host 112 projects, with a strong fifth grade participation by intermediate school students.
All students who receive a Superior rating during the Big Walnut Science Fair qualify to advance to Central District Science Day held at Columbus State on March 16; and students who receive a Superior at Central District Science Day will be invited to advance to State Science Day held on May 11 at The Ohio State University.
