This year, COG is one of the sponsors of the ACT Science Fair.

The Objectives of the Science Fair are:

1. To encourage active involvement and interest by students in science.

2. To encourage students to pursue their interests in science beyond the boundaries of the classroom.

3. To encourage students to undertake planned and controlled investigations in science and report their results in an appropriate manner.

4. To encourage students to apply these processes to scientific enquiry to topics that interest them.

5. To encourage students to record and present their work for others and in so doing, develop the various skills used in scientific communication.

6. To enable the community, including other students and teachers, to see project work done by students in the ACT colleges, school and preschools.

Further details are in the attached booklet.

I hope that there will be lots of entries with an avifauna focus this year.  COG chatliners might like to encourage their (grand-)children to enter.

You are also welcome to see the work at Mawson Primary School from 24 to 28 August and at CSIRO Discovery Centre from 29 August to 4 September. 

I was impressed with a lot of the entries at last year's Fair, which is why I recommended that COG should become a sponsor (I am keen to lower the age profile of our membership).
