The 4th Annual Science Festival will take place May 5 at Castro Valley High School from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This free event is sponsored by the Castro Valley Educational Foundation and is open to district students in grades K-12, their families, and the community.
According to the foundation's website, the science festival’s goal is to encourage student interest in math and sciences by showcasing excellent exhibits and demonstrations by the district's science teachers, students, and other educational organizations.

The school district's fifth grade teachers will also bring their best student science works (posters or exhibits) to the event.
A microbiology lab at the festival will allow students to prepare, examine, and take home their own cultures. Castro Valley High School Science Club will show you what they’ve been working on, and students can tour the high school's labs.
