Science Fair Logo
The CHICO SCIENCE FAIR will be held February 25 - February 28, 2019 at the Chico Masonic Family Center, located at 1110 W. East Ave. Please note, due to the Camp Fire shelter extension at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds, the Science Fair has moved to the Masonic Family Center for this year. Any documentation which states the location of the fair is at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds is incorrect. 
Now is the time to be thinking about a science question that you would love to explore! Last year, over 650 curious Chico students investigated some part of our world and entered their projects in this local fair.  Design your project and plan to exhibit it, or come and see the Science Fair as a visitor.
