The first Shoreline Science Fair was a big hit with participants and organizers.
The March 23, 2013, fair was hosted at Shoreline Community College and drew 50 entrants from across Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. The independent fair is the brainchild of Shoreline resident Ray Koelling. The fair was open to anyone generally in grades 4-12 from any school.
While the fair drew students from Shoreline-area schools, it was not sponsored by the district. Koelling and co-organizer Keith Officer also put together a science career fair that ran concurrently with the judged competition for the students.
Officer said he felt the event was very successful and is looking forward to doing it again next year.
The event has a web site at www.shorelinesciencefair.org and Officer said official results would likely be posted there.
