St. Perpetua Science Fair
From November to February, students participate in the St. Perpetua Science Fair. They choose an area of study, research, form and test their hypothesis, and then report their results and conclusions to a panel of judges. These are presented during Catholic Schools' Week at Science Fair Night where the students teach each other, their parents, and the community about their findings. Other activities are also provided that night to engage students in scientific discussion and exploration.
The six winning 7th and 8th grade projects are then presented at the Diocesan Science Fair during the second week of February. St. Perpetua's students have been named Grand Champions and placed in the top three winners of several categories at this level of competition. These students have then competed at the San Francisco Bay Area Science Fair against 7th-12th grade students. Our students have proudly won first, second, and third place ribbons in this event as well as prestigious awards from national science organizations. St. Perpetua has also had students compete at the state level in Los Angeles at the California State Science Fair.
