Universal’s School-Wide Science Fair



Universal Companies Family of Schools, founded by Mr. Kenny Gamble is hosting a school
wide science fair for their students in grades 4 – 12 from the following schools: Universal
Alcorn, Universal Alcorn Middle Year, Universal Audenried, Universal Blurford, Universal
Creighton, Universal Daroff, Universal Institute Charter School & Universal Vare.

The science fair is being held to get the scholars to prepare for the city-wide George Washington
Carver Science Fair, named in honor of the late Dr. George Washington Carver: scientist,
inventor, artist, musician, and great humanitarian. Founded by a group of educators and business
people in 1979, The George Washington Carver Science Fair encourages urban youth to pursue
academic achievement and careers in science.

The Carver Fair is open to all students in grades four through twelve who attend Philadelphia
County public, charter, parochial, and private schools, as well as to home schooled students
residing in the county.  Since its inception, over 34,000 students have participated in the Carver
Science Fair and have, in many cases, moved on to compete in the Delaware Valley Regional
and Intel International Science Fairs.
