2004 Interest Fair Photos

Students at St. Joseph Montessori School in Columbus, Ohio, shunned the proverbial "science fair" in favor of a broader alternative -- an "interest fair." The school's fair is a diverse event that gives participants an opportunity to investigate favorite topics and share them with the school community.

The photos below were taken at the 2004 Interest Fair, held in February.
