Regional Science Fair Coming to Montana Tech

Regional Science Fair Coming to Montana Tech



The annual Montana Tech Regional Science Fair will be held on March 8th and March 10th on the Montana Tech campus. "We are expecting 700 participants from 20 different elementary, middle, and high schools across southwest Montana to compete in our science fair," said Bernie Phelps, Science Fair Director.

The Montana Tech Fair has a reputation of granting more awards than any fair in the state. "Students who compete here stand a great chance of being acknowledged for their scientific endeavors because the Butte community is so wonderful at supporting this fair," said Phelps. Organizations wishing to contribute money or prizes to the Fair can contact Bernie at (406) 496-4565, or through email at

"Our goal is to give every student a quality experience that enhances their excitement for scientific research and prepares them to compete well should they advance to state or national competitions," said Phelps. Over 100 volunteer judges will staff the fair.

Montana Tech welcomes the community to view the competing projects at 5pm on March 8th in the SUB, or 5:30pm on March 10th in the HPER gym. For more information, please visit
