COVID-19 Science Fair Update March 13, 2020
The Ventura County Office of Education’s top priority is the safety and health of our students, advisors, volunteers, and families. With that in mind, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Ventura County Science Fair. We will provide a $15 per/student refund.
The Ventura County Office of Education has been closely monitoring recommendations and issuances from federal, state and local health agencies (including the Ventura County and CA Dept. of Public Health) regarding Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). In the coming days, we anticipate guidance from federal, state and local health agencies to urge stronger restrictions for gatherings and recommend additional social distancing.
In addition, the Ventura County Science Fair host site, California Lutheran University, has canceled all events with an expected attendance of more than 100 people and is encouraging the cancelation of smaller events as well.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and support of this difficult decision.
Do you ask yourself, 'Why' and 'How'? Do you drive adults crazy asking questions they can't seem to answer? Do you like to take things apart to see how they work? Want to learn how to get the answers you seek?
Participating in science fair you will learn the scientific and engineering processes used to answer the questions you have and solve the problems that you are interested in. You will use mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry, etc... and have so much fun doing it, you won't even realize your learning! Best of all, you get to choose the question or problem that you want to work on.
I invite you to become part of a program that will provide you with the tools and processes to look at the world in a completely different way. I invite you to have a lot of fun while learning something amazing about the world and yourself.
