The fair also provided students an enriched experience that can’t be duplicated in the classroom, while improving their critical thinking, public speaking and research skills.

This year, 250 students participated, while a total of 150 parent, teacher and community volunteers attended the event. View photos from the 2024 Anoka-Hennepin STEM Fair.

“The STEM Fair provides students the opportunity to learn science by actually being scientists,” said Kevin Molohon, STEM Fair coordinator and science teacher at Champlin Park High School. “It allows students to do authentic science and the experience is invaluable for them moving forward."

Anoka-Hennepin has a rich history of science fairs dating back to the late 1960s.
