The Garrison Mill Science Fair is a wonderful way for elementary aged students to participate in and experience a scientific project. Each project must consist of a student-led scientific investigation following accepted scientific methods. The six top-place projects from Garrison Mill will be accepted to the Cobb-Paulding District Science Fair.
