Nearly 1,300 students from 19 local schools will be participating in the 10th annual Science Jam next Tuesday afternoon at Aberdeen Centre.

Billed as B.C.’s largest, non-competitive science fair, the annual exhibition of local scientists-in-the-making will be held from 4 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26, and is part of Education Week.

Co-ordinated by dozens of teachers at Richmond elementary schools, more than 500 projects that cover all areas of science will take centre stage at Science Jam.

At 5 p.m., the exhibition will feature an “Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader?” segment, followed at 6:10 p.m. with a 20-minute Science World Show.
