Kids become more engaged in science projects. A teacher has mentioned that she has never seen one of her minority student as engaged in a project as when they were preparing for their Science night exhibit. Understanding local research increases its support. An example is the genuine interest and increased respect in animal research that the presentation of WNPRC and WiCell generates. In several occasions the fair was featured by the local press, like Capitol Times and Channel 3, including the newspaper from the WI latino community, La Comunidad.
