​ABERDEEN, S.D. – The 31st annual Northern South Dakota Science and Mathematics Fair will be held March 27 in the Barnett Center at Northern State University.


An estimated 370 junior and senior high school students from 18 schools in the area will display science projects. The students come from Brown, Campbell, Day, Edmunds, Faulk, Hyde, Marshall, McPherson, Roberts, Spink and Walworth counties.

Projects will be judged in the morning and will be open for public viewing from 1 to 7 p.m. The science fair awards ceremony, which is open to the public and free of charge, will begin at 6 p.m. upstairs in the Barnett Center.
The top two individuals and top team consisting of two students will receive an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles to attend the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair May 11-16. There, students will compete for cash awards and other prizes such as free college tuition.
Junior and senior high science bowls, held in conjunction with the fair, will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Johnson Fine Arts Center at NSU. The public is invited to attend.
The science fair is under the direction of Dr. Jodie Ramsay, NSU professor of biology, and Linda Richards, secretary of the biology, chemistry and physics, and mathematics department.

Approximately 50 NSU faculty and staff members and upper-level students, as well as several professionals from the Aberdeen community, will judge projects at the fair.
