What is a reverse science fair?

A reverse science fair is a research symposium for local graduate and undergraduate college students where visiting high school students will be participating as judges for their presentations. The event is free for the community to attend with the intent to make science more accessible to the public.

Throughout the day free to the public there will be educational and professional development workshops.

To close the event, there will be an awards ceremony presented by a keynote speaker*.
