St. Pius X runs our Science Fair Team as an extracurricular activity. The goals for the Science Fair Team members are to explore a question of interest in depth; to gain knowledge of a scientific concept through research, experimentation and observations; and to promote critical thinking and problem solving skills through data collection, interpretation of data, and technical writing. Competitors are offered the opportunity to participate in the Northwest Science Expo (Intel Science Fair), usually held the Friday before Spring Break, and, if available, one additional science fair in the late Spring.
"Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will or, even less, is the property of only a few. Creation is a gift, it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude. Safeguard creation." ~Pope Francis
