The 2017 Da Vinci Fest was a day to experience the jaw-dropping talents of St. Croix Valley students and learn about the wonders of science and art from the educational exhibits and demonstrations scattered throughout Stillwater Area High School.
Student Art Fair winners had the chance to display their work during a special exhibit at ArtGuild Gallery in downtown Stillwater. And more than 20 Da Vinci Science Fair winners went on to further competition at the Twin Cities Regional Science Fair, sponsored by The Partnership Plan.
Da Vinci Fest is a free, family-friendly day designed to experience the wonder of art and science. You can view student art and science projects plus an entire building full of special exhibits and demonstrations.
Da Vinci Fest will be held on Jan. 6, 2018.
Besides the student Science Fair and the student Art Fair, Da Vinci offers students other ways to show their academic talents. There is a student Film Fest and Spoken Word, and the Stillwater Science Challenge, an on-the-spot competitive science event.
In addition, the event features educational exhibits by more than 30 Twin Cities organizations, demonstrations, music, and special performances. Favorites include ice sculpting, glass-blowing, the 3M Visiting Wizards, Curio Dance, and the amazing feats of the high school’s Physics Club.
And, as always
a special appearance by Leonardo himself!
Over the nine years of its existence, Da Vinci Fest has grown into a signature community event, occupying all the common areas and many of the classrooms at Stillwater Area High School. It is open to the public from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, followed by an Awards Ceremony at 5:30. On the Friday preceding the event, there is an Artists’ Reception, allowing the student artists to invite family and friends to view the artworks.
