Students from around the region came to participate in the Sunset Country’s Regional Science Fair in Fort Frances on Sat. April 2, 2016. The students were divided into junior and intermediate groups and underwent several rounds of judging before welcoming the public to review their work.
The science fair focused on three categories: experiment, innovation, and study.
