Homeschool science fair triples in participants

Students show off their science skills



ALPHARETTA – A science fair gave homeschooled students in Forsyth, Fulton and the surrounding area a chance to show off their skills Feb. 18.

This year, there were triple the amount of participants.

The second annual science fair was hosted by Lifelong Educational Opportunities (LEO) at 5000 McGinnis Ferry Road in Alpharetta.

The fair brought together the homeschool student community for a day of demonstrations, experiments and hands-on activities, said Teresa Stanton, the owner and director of the center.

The 16 participants ranged in age from 7 to 14 and encompassed elementary through high school education.

Last year, there were five participants in the science fair.

The children and adults were treated to displays involving physics, electronics, biology, chemistry and even astrophysics to name a few, Stanton said.

Lifelong Educational Opportunities is a community resource center offering classes, activities, clubs and events to the homeschool community.
