It all begins during the winter months of each school year; the much anticipated Science Fair Project selection process. Students from all over the school district begin researching their topics, collecting data and discussing their proposed experiments.

Experimentation in subjects such as: physics, behavioral sciences, earth science, computer science, astronomy, microbiology, engineering, mathematics and health medicine just to name a few.

With such an intense and profound focus on the subject of science, the months from November through March are now affectionately called "Science Fair Season," by teachers throughout the Riverview District.

The Season of Science has now grown to include students in the PARADE Home School Program (Parents and Riverview Actively Delivering Education) as well. This year over 60 students participated in the first annual PARADE Science Fair. Subject matter ranged from topics such as "Real and Fake Smiles" to "A Worm’s Reaction to Pesticide in Bananas."

Students involved should be commended for their hard work and dedication, and for sharing their passions for science with such enthusiasm.

PARADE Program Manager Paul Censullo says, "The turnout and support from our students and parents for this first-ever PARADE science fair was just tremendous and the PARADE staff should be commended for their outstanding efforts in bringing this event to fruition."
