More than 70 science projects in the Junior and Senior divisions attracted a big crowd to the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Center for the Kaua‘i Regional Science and Engineering Fair.

A bonus was the appearance of exhibitors, including the Wilcox Elementary School Science, Technology, Engineering and Math students who wow-ed the audience with their array of STEM-based activities, including the Kid Challenge, the potato gun, and CAD demonstrations that featured artifacts being distributed for donations benefiting the wildlife victims of the Australian brushfires.

Congratulations and mahalo to the many community supporters that enable the top five overall winners in each division to advance to the Hawai‘i Science and Engineering Fair, and the top winner in the Senior Division to attend the international fair in Anaheim, California.
