The Lincoln Elementary Science Fair, sponsored by the Lincoln PTA, was held on Wednesday, February 13th. It showcased many Lincoln students' talent for science! This year's science fair was open to students in Grades 2 – 5. We want to thank Mrs. Maggie Frey and Mrs. Amanda Babst for serving as the Lincoln PTA Science Fair committee co-chairs. Under their leadership, this year's science fair was a resounding success! A special thank you goes out to Mad Science for sponsoring the two activity rooms for our students and our guest judges for taking time to offer their time and talents at the science fair.
