Announcing: winners of Outschool's first-ever science fair!

For Learners Dec 15, 2020

Recently, the Outschool Learner Community hosted its first ever Science Fair. With over 350 enrolled participants from three different continents, we'd say it was a success!

It was amazing to see the creativity and dedication to the scientific process from every learner, and we would like to thank each of you for inspiring the community. Β 

We would also like to thank our Outschool teachers, Laura Petrusic, Mary Grace Martinez , Teri Barenborg, Karen Fisher Favret the FractalMom and Tara Oakes for helping us with the difficult task of choosing the top projects for each category. Additionally, a big thank you to Β thank all the teachers who taught to the science fair this year!
