ASD-N District 2016 STEM Fairs have proven to be a tremendous success! In total ASD-N held four different fairs over the course of three weeks. This involved over 185 projects and close to 300 students participating. Things kicked off during the last week of March with Grade 6-12 events at Bathurst High School & James M.
