Randall Museum Science Fair Winners Head to State Championships

Science Fair

More than 160 students from San Francisco’s public and private schools competed in this year’s San Francisco Middle School Science Fair. Students from Roosevelt Middle School, St. Philip the Apostle, and Notre Dame des Victoires took first place in the behavioral science category, while students from St. Gabriel School, Holy Name School and Adda Clevenger School earned first in the environmental science category. Students from Roosevelt Middle School and St. Brendan Parish School earned first place in the biology category. Students from Rooftop, Stratford School and St. Philip the Apostle took first place in physical sciences.

The Randall Museum has hosted the Middle School Science Fair for 37 years. San Francisco Recreation and Park Department staff organize the event and Randall Museum Friends raise funds to purchase the supplies and other amenities needed to run the fair.

“The Middle School Science Fair is one of the things that makes the Randall Museum so special,” said Rec and Parks General Manager Phil Ginsburg. “The museum’s hands-on exhibits, classes and camps have fostered a love of science and nature in countless San Francisco children.”

San Francisco Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews commended all the middle schoolers who participated in the fair.

“At SFUSD, we believe a well-rounded and rigorous science education is critical to a 21st century education and appreciate the museum for giving our students an opportunity to showcase their learning,” he said.

Winners will now move on to the Golden Gate STEM Fair. Their projects will be displayed March 23 at the Bay Model Visitor Center in Sausalito from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students earning top spots will then move on to the California State Science Fair.
