2022 Opportunity X Science Fair Flyer.png

Announcement

We are so excited to announce that our third annual Opportunity X Science Fair will be held virtually on Sunday, June 5, from 2 to 4 PM PDT. Students from our Opportunity X school programs from across the nation will present the research projects they’ve been working on for the past few months through online poster speeches and demonstrations.

 

Our officers have also invited multiple industry professionals to speak with participants, and we’ve organized various hands-on experiments, which can be completed at-home, that are paired with lessons on relevant science concepts.


We invite all students, parents, friends, and teachers within the Opportunity X community to attend!
