Science Fairs…Are They Real, Or A Hollywood Invention??

Seriously, so many TV shows and movies have science fairs. But I am wondering…do science fairs even exist? I’ve never been to one. Heck I’ve never even heard of one happening…anywhere.

And in the film adaptations of science fairs, it’s usually like middle school or elementary school kids participating, and they bust out these ridiculous inventions that you’d likely only find in a senior year engineering course from a college.

It’s the most cliche science fair project ever, and is nearly depicted in every science fair that I’ve seen, (the fictional ones, as I’ve said, I’ve never seen a real one). And somehow they always fascinate people, despite there being on the tables next to it a new energy source and a microwave that can create any food you imagine on the spot from virtually nothing.

 

So I really am curious. Has anyone actually been to a science fair, participant or viewer, or at the very least heard of one? Please let me know!
