Interior Alaska Science Fair

Each year, the education department chooses projects at the Interior Alaska Science Fair that demonstrate Alaska-related exhibit themes.

Student collections of specimens and/or observations of natural and cultural history phenomena are important. We judge the exhibit on the clarity of the hypothesis, research methodology, conclusions, and how the exhibit theme is interpreted. Only six awards are given each year.Congratulations to the winners of the museum’s 2014 District Science Fair Awards.
