Students showed off their creative science projects at The Rocky Mountain Elementary School Science Fair last month.

The school in Elkford held their Science Fair on January 26th and 27th.

Day one saw the primary students display their projects for judging with the intermediate students’ projects on display the second day.

Norma Everett, Director of Corporate Services at the District of Elkford, said, “The projects were very creative, innovative, well displayed and the students knew their topics. The judging was difficult as the students had set the bar very high with the quality of the projects presented.”

The Regional Science Fair is being held in Cranbrook at the College of the Rockies on February 23.
