Students Shine at District Science Fair

District Science Fair 2017



It was standing room only as students, parents, staff and community members crowded Reed Middle School for the 2017 Duncanville ISD District Science Fair and awards ceremony.

Students from the district’s elementary, intermediate and middle schools created 165 displays showing the results of their scientific studies including models, cycles, inventions and experiments.

Volunteers from the City of Duncanville, Perot Museum and Dallas Zoo judged the projects that were submitted by Duncanville ISD students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
