MSU BILLINGS NEWS—Have you selected a project for upcoming science fairs? Do you know how to execute and present a project?

Be prepared for future science fairs by attending a free workshop hosted by Montana State University Billings and Billings Clinic.


Designed for students (from first grade to high school seniors), their parents and their teachers, the workshop will be held on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Glacier Room of MSU Billings’ Student Union Building.


This interactive workshop will explain the scientific method and how to put together a quality science fair project from start to finish. Participants will learn how to incorporate the scientific method to produce a great project and how to experiment with scientific merit and design.


Pat Lowthian, a fourth-grade teacher at McKinley Elementary School and a Science Expo committee member, will be the main presenter at the workshop.


The upcoming MSU Billings and Billings Clinic Science Expo will be held March 22-23, 2019 at MSU Billings. The Expo is open and free to youth from across the region.


This year, the 31st year of the Expo, the theme is “Health, Fitness, and Nutrition.”
