More About Visiting Ford House

Enjoy a fun day of STEM exploration and show some love and appreciation for our beautiful lake with the first-ever Lake St. Clair Science Fair.

The fair will explore the natural and cultural history, conservation, and recreational uses of our important Great Lakes waterway through a variety of programs and activities.

At the fair, you will learn about the geology, habitats, invasive species, water quality, ecology, and the many ways we use the lake for recreation and artistic inspiration.

Partners for the Lake St. Clair Science Fair include Clinton River Water Council, Six Rivers Land Conservancy, Great Lakes Commission, Dr. John Harris (award-winning Great Lakes scientist), and more.

Guests will be able to try their hand at water testing, water-based experiments, see an underwater drone demonstration, learn about the Ford House shoreline restoration, listen to storytimes, Lego-water-dam building, listen to interesting speakers, and engage in fun activities along the way.
All ages are welcome, and there’s something for everyone to learn and enjoy.

Admission is $5, and kids 3 and under are free.

The Lake St. Clair Science Fair is made possible through the generosity of the Ralph C. Wilson Funds.
