The District Science Fair was held on March 17-19, 2016 in Bethel. Students from Kipnuk, Oscarville and Toksook Bay participated in the elementary, middle school and high school divisions of competition.

The students who attended were treated to science-based activities including Model Rocket Building & Launches, Energy Conduction, and Wind Energy.
