Petition to make the science fair optional in FCPS honors science classes

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Students in Fairfax County Public Schools honors science classes are forced to participate in the science fair even if they have no interest in it. By doing this, students become less interested in science and do not want to further educate themselves in the wonders of science. It forces kids who would otherwise take honors science to take regular science and not push themselves and challenge themselves and thus results in little growth. By forcing kids to participate in the science fair, FCPS is setting kids on a path to not explore their possibility in science.
