Visitors are welcome to attend the public open house which begins at 5 p.m. and includes an elementary robotics showcase with more than 22 schools participating and a K-12 project exhibition, a shark-tank style product pitch competition, and a K-5 robotics expo. An awards ceremony will be held from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. to honor this year’s top projects.     

     The sponsors for this year’s gathering of science superstars include Presenting Sponsor— PCOM Georgia (Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine); Award and Innovation in Action Sponsor— Boehringer Ingelheim; Platinum Sponsors— Jackson EMC, Brace Family Foundation, and Broadcom Foundation; Gold Sponsor— Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta; Breakout Sponsor— Georgia Gwinnett College; Silver Sponsors— Chick-fil-A Sugarloaf Corporate Center and Moore Road, GCPS Foundation, GCPS TV, Nordson, Code Ninjas; Bronze Sponsors— McFarland-Dyer & Associates, Mobile, Communications, MetroPower, Woodward & Curran, and Business X Radio.

     This year, more than 400 projects, which placed first at the local school level, will represent the best of student research in Gwinnett County. These projects, spotlighting the creativity and innovation of more than 650 students, will be judged by Georgia professionals and scientists who will assess them on scientific quality, accuracy, creativity, and experimental design. 

     The high school and middle school students who earn first place at the Regional fair level competition will move to the next round— the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair— which will be held in Athens, Georgia, March 28– March 30.
