Lincoln Land Community College will host the annual Illinois Junior Academy of Science (IJAS) Region 10 Science Fair Saturday, March 25. The public is invited to view the 112 science projects on display from noon to 3 p.m. in Cass Gymnasium. An awards ceremony will begin at 3 p.m.
Students from 17 area junior high and high schools will participate. Students whose projects receive an outstanding score advance to the IJAS State Science Fair at Northern Illinois University on May 6.
The Regional Science Fair, facilitated by Tony Rothering, LLCC professor of biology, provides students an avenue in which to exercise their knowledge and understanding of scientific methodology. IJAS encourages students with special ability and interest in science to go beyond the limits of the classroom in developing their own ideas, perhaps aiding them in their progress toward a career in science.
