Thursday, November 21, 2019, was an outstanding day for science discoveries in Surry County Schools. The annual Science Fair Showcase was held at Meadowview Magnet Middle School where student scientists were competing to participate at the regional science fair. Artist and musician, Andy Falconer stated, “The future belongs to the curious. The ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it, and turn it inside out.” That is exactly what has been happening at all 19 schools and was displayed at Meadowview Magnet Middle. Students, curious about science showcased their work and thinking to answer questions or to create new ones.
