Message from the Director
Welcome to the Western Regional Science Fair! This year we are looking forward to seeing even more schools participate and share their exciting projects.
This year's theme will be "Our State, Our Time, Our Science". We'll be exploring the significant contributions our state has made across the many fields of science. I'm sure you'll learn a lot you may not have known about the Tarheel state and why we can be proud of our achievements and our future.
As usual there will be plenty of awards and prizes to go around. Dr. Richard Starnes,
Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences will be awarding the many prizes. We look
forward to seeing you on Feb 10th and 11th.
