More than 100 children from First State Community Action Agency’s afterschool program (Georgetown and La Casita Homework Assistance programs) took part in the third annual Science Fair hosted by the agency.
The event was held in the First State Community Action Agency facilities (308 N. Railroad Ave, Georgetown DE), on April 23
The purpose of the fair was to interest and engage children—many of whom are from low-income, Hispanic / Latino backgrounds—in the sciences (STEM). Fourteen different presenters conducted presentations and experiments, all things science, ranging from robotics, solar energy, hematology and medicine, technology and more.
Children will had the opportunity to interact with live animals and engaged in various scientific experiments.
Presenters included Girl Scouts, Delaware Technical Community College, Abbotts Mills, 4-H, Rosa Clinic, and Mikayla Ockels, a Sussex county native, 2014 Diamond Clover award recipient, and 2015 Practical Impact Awardee who was invited to participate in the White House Science Fair for her astounding “Heritage Hen” research in the agricultural sciences.
