Each year, the Marshfield elementary schools offer an opportunity for students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade to participate in a science fair.
The event started small in 1987, with only 12 participants, but grew and grew over the years. In time, one night was not enough to fit in all the projects. Shook Elementary (grades fourth and fifth) now has its own night and Hubble and Webster Elementary (grades kindergarten and first; and grades second and third) have a separate evening. This year, 162 students in kindergarten through fifth grade made projects of their own choosing and presented their work to judges. After students spoke with the judges, they got to travel through the fair, learning new things their classmates had discovered.
