The Environmental Challenge Science Fair

On March 14, 2012, Syracuse city school district 7th and 8th grade students transformed the Carrier Dome and ESF campus into a buzz of scientific exploration when they presented their science projects in the 11th Environmental Challenge Science Fair hosted by SUNY-ESF Outreach. About 300 projects focused around the theme “Science Around Central New York” were presented by 500 students and judged by more than 100 volunteers who represented public, private, non-profit, and educational organizations from throughout Central New York. The Environmental Challenge aims to encourage scientific research, exploration of science-based careers, and an understanding of the connection between urban and global environments.

Congratulations and thank you to Brandon Murphy, Rick Beal, Sharon Weis, and the rest of the team for their hard work putting together this year’s incredibly successful Environmental Challenge.
