What IS a Genius Fair?
A science fair, talent show, and career fair all rolled into one. Where students can showcase talents like Djing, Thrifting, Cosplay, Mask-Making, Lava Lamps, Singing, and wherever their genius takes them
Why do a Genius Fair?
A big part of genius fair is to be able to give students the opportunity to be able to showcase and develop talents that may have otherwise been kept hidden. The presenters are able to show others how to do what they do and the participants/guests are able to learn from their peers. At this genius fair we had 5th-8th present and any age could come to learn
Professionals were important to be there so students would be able to get experience and gain inspiration from people who "make". Some of our teachers even came out to teach everything from making model airplanes to pop-up-cards. By seeing this "real-life" inspiration, students are able to think about other career paths and hobbies.
