KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Tate’s School hosted a regional science fair in Knoxville Monday for the brightest students in the community.
Tate’s School has long believed in fostering science in the Knoxville community. For the fair, students submitted their projects in one of three categories – Earth, life or physical science – and must complete an in-depth interview with a panel of judges.
“You get to actually try it out youself. You do get help from your parents, but it’s more fun if you do it by yourself and you build it and figure it out,” said fourth grader Alisa Apostoeai.
The fair has been going on since 2001. Grand prize winners get a trophy, a certificate, a Kindle Fire and $150 for their teacher.
