Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) is proud of our students who participated in the 2022 Northern Virginia Science and Engineering Fair. More than 30 ACPS student projects were recommended to advance to the regional level of the fair, which was held in a hybrid format at the end of March. Many of our students received recognition and awards.
“The regional fair not only offers a chance for high school students to continue on to the state level, students are also eligible to receive additional recognition from various societies,” said ACPS STEM Coordinator and Elementary Math Instructional Specialist Julia R. Neufer.
