Ready, Set, Explore! NCSD Hosts 2019 Central Regional Science Fair

The Natrona County School District hosted the Central Regional Science Fair this past weekend at Verda James Elementary School.

Students from schools in Natrona County (Crest Hill, Manor Heights, Verda James, Fort Caspar Academy, Oregon Trail, and Excel Academy), along with Wheatland Middle School, Glendo High School, Guernsey-Sunrise and Chugwater Middle School met in Casper for the District and Junior Regional Science Fair. Erin Stoesz, the Director of the Wyoming State Science Fair, was on-hand to observe the proceedings and encouraged all participants to continue their interest in the world of science.

All District participants received “Progressing,” “Proficient” or “Advanced Proficient” certificates along with the judges’ critiques.
