2013 Brochure and Scavenger Hunt
The Scavenger Hunt consists of a list of questions that can be answered by visting events, presentation and demonstrations.
The Scavenger Hunt is suggested as a method of helping students stay focused and make the most of the EXPO experience. Answers will be posted the Monday following Expo.
Teachers are encouraged to edit the scavenger hunt questions to cover a desired breadth or depth of topics.
