Last year, I introduced Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 47 recognizing March as California Science Fair Month. As an Astrophysicist, I know that science fairs are often a student's first exploration into the world of science.

Science Fairs around the state emphasize the importance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, and the value of exploration and research conducted by young pupils in areas that interest them.

I hope that in honor of California Science Fair Month you will participate in one of our local events:
