25th Anniversary GATEway Science Fair

Calling all students in grades 3-6, GATEway is proud to announce the 25th Annual GATEway Science Fair.  This is a great chance to be a scientist!  There are three ways to get involved:  1) Register for the fair, 2) Sign-up for a Free Workshop, 3) Help design the 2014 Science Fair T-shirt. 

To begin, the GATEway Science Fair will be held Sat. Feb. 22, 2014 from 12:30 to 4:30 PM in the Gonda Building of the Mayo Clinic. You can register now at  and start thinking about project ideas.  You can also find more information about  the GATEway Science Fair at

If you need a little help getting started or are curious about how to put a science project together, then sign up for one of our free “How-To” Workshops. You'll learn what a science fair project is and get ideas for one of your own. You will also learn how to prepare the display board and get tips on how to explain it to reviewers at the science fair. Scientists will be on hand to demonstrate some sample experiments and help you get started.

Our “How-To” Workshops are free, but pre-registration is required. Workshops are open to students in grades 3-6 and their parents and will be held in the RCTC Heintz Center in the Commons. Choose between two available times: Tues., Dec. 3, 2013, 6:30-8:00 PM, or Sat. Dec. 7, 2013, 1:00-2:30 PM. Sign up online at and click on “Science Fair” in the left hand column and look for the “Workshops” link in the left column.  Science Fair Workshops are co-sponsored by RCTC Community & Youth Programs, in collaboration with Mayo Research Fellows’ Association and the Century High School STEM Society.

Last but not least, to commemorate our 25th anniversary, we are having a contest to create the 2014 Science Fair T-shirt design.  We are looking for ideas in the form of a description, a sketch, or actual artwork.  Please check in the Science Fair link of our website at for more details.  Entry deadline is Wed. Nov 20, 2013.
