Laveen hosted its first district science fair on May 3. Each Laveen school previously held science fairs that included students in Grades 4 — 8. Schools awarded two winners per grade level to compete at the district level fair.

Family, friends, and teachers of the science entrants spent an evening at the Laveen Education Center perusing the variety of experiments. Ribbons were awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners from each grade level.
