Community Outreach Opportunity
The Patuxent Partnership supports the science fair programs in all three counties. TPP provides special awards and judges to encourage the commitment and accomplishments of the students in our region. In addition, many of our members also support individual counties, programs, and students as resources, examples, advisors, mentors, and as role models. Details of the TPP programs will be promulgated soon. The proposed schedules of, and links to, the individual county programs are provided below:
