“Exploring Science and Faith”

Date: Thurs. April 16, 2020
Time: 6:30- 8:00 p.m.
Location: Detwiler Auditorium,
Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community

Students from local Christian high schools and homeschools will participate in a science fair as they incorporate science and faith into each project.

As students utilize the tools of science–investigation, discovery, communication—they will simultaneously understand the “fingerprints of the Creator” at work in our world in the past and now. A primary goal of this science fair is to encourage students of high school age, who initiate explorations in science through the completion of a research project, to recognize and describe the integration of faith within their work.

In our Christian understanding, we believe God originated our world and the elements within it by some means and that God continues to sustain the universe. This raises questions about God’s character, past actions and design, and about how Christian believers should live today. Students will pursue these and other such questions in their projects.

A. Chemistry, Physics, Physical & Earth Science
B. Biology, Environmental Science, Agriculture
