MAGE’s Annual Geography Fair will be held on Saturday February 9th at the Science Museum of Minnesota from 9:00 to 12:00. Students in Grades K-8 are invited to participate in this annual event by creating a geography-themed project to showcase at the Science Museum’s Discovery Hall where it will be evaluated by supportive and encouraging geographers.
Student participants (a maximum of 12 per school) receive free exhibit hall passes to the Science Museum of Minnesota for the day which includes the newly opened Future Earth, an exhibit exploring the potential impact that 9 billion people may have on the planet. OMNI passes are not included but students can view an OMNI film for an additional cost. Participants also receive a certificate of participation and take part in special geography-based activities. The event concludes with door prize drawings for both teachers and students given generously by fair sponsors.
We hope you take advantage of this great opportunity to encourage budding geographers to take their learning to the next level in what is sure to be a fun morning and day at the Science Museum.
