2012Jun01 Central Coast Science Fair

The Science Fair mission is to provide students with an experience into the world of creativity and thinking in science, engineering, and mathematics.  We hope they will consider a high-tech career in the future.  Engineers, scientists, and educators from the Endeavour Center, Vandenberg AFB, and the community are donating their time to run a first class science fair.
