Two Verona Area elementary schools hosted their annual fairs Thursday, March 7, letting students show off their writing and creativity, and a third joined in Friday, March 15.

Glacier Edge Elementary School’s event included a science fair, author fair and art fair. Students’ science projects filled half of the school’s gymnasium, with a book sale on the other half.

At Stoner Prairie Elementary School’s innovation fair, students showed off their science projects, tried out technology like virtual reality and visited booths set up by local science-related groups.

On March 15, Sugar Creek Elementary School students showcased films, read stories and poems, explored a book fair and watched science experiments by the group Fusion Science Theater. Attendees browsed student science projects in the gym, where children also participated in activities lead by University of Wisconsin-Madison biochemistry students, the McPherson Eye Research Institute and Discovery Outreach.
