- The Science Fair Needs You!
- November 6th, 2013
We need for our students to be great thinkers and a science project can help a person to explore his/her own curiosity in a hands-on, problem solving fashion! As Twenty First Century citizens, students will have to make some of the toughest decisions of any generation, based on their understanding of emerging science and technology. In addition, science, technology and engineering are basic skills expected by many employers.
Our school is holding a science fair on February 12th
and all students in grades K through 5th have been invited to participate. Hands-on scientific investigation and how things work are the focus at our particular fair. Students who participate will have an opportunity to compete with other student-scientists and present their scientific achievement. The sky’s the limit!
Please note that the bulk of the work will be done at home. Students will be given project guidelines and timelines at school, and teachers will remind them of the time lines periodically. You can also find these at the Important Links below. However, the work will be self-directed. Parents are encouraged to offer emotional support, reminders, and some guidance, but to allow children to do the projects by themselves.
1. Conduct an experiment using the scientific method
2. Build an engineering project
3. Create a 3 dimensional model of something (either natural or mechanical)
4. Create a diagram/poster to teach about a scientific concept.
Everyone must keep a daily journal of his or her on-going project.

Thank you very much in advance for your support!
