Join us for our 9th Annual Science Fair!

Encouraging Curiosity & Creativity

 

 

WHEN: Monday, March 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

 

WHERE: KES Cafeteria

 

WHAT: A voluntary, extracurricular, non-competitive Science Fair.  The focus of the Fair is to inspire a love of science and to get students excited about learning!  We want the students to have fun with their projects and not be concerned about doing the “most creative” or “most complicated” type of project.

 

WHO: All students in all grades are invited to participate.  Students can work individually or with a friend or two.  All students who participate in the Fair will receive a participation ribbon as well as 100 extra credit points!

 

 

 

What to do next

  1. Complete the attached Registration Form and return to your child’s homeroom teacher by Friday, March 1.

  2. There are five ways in which your child can participate in the Science Fair. We reviewed each of these with the students at our kick off meeting and provided examples. Participation opportunities include:

    1. Document an Observation

    2. Create a Model

    3. Compile a Collection

    4. Do a Demonstration

    5. Do an Experiment Using the Scientific Method

  3. Decide a project theme. There are many websites with great ideas and the KES Library will have science related books on display to provide your child with possible project ideas. Here is a list of other possible themes & helpful resources.

  4. Help your child decide if he/she will work on the project individually or with a friend or two. Students from different grades can work together on the project.  Parents should feel free to help younger students as needed.

  5. Projects should be documented on a 3 fold poster board, if possible.

  6. Students should bring their poster board and any other materials to the Fair between 6:00 and the 6:30 p.m. start time to set up in the Cafeteria.

  7. Students will stand by their project to explain what they did and answer any questions as other students and families come by.

  8. At the end of the Fair, the students’ poster boards may be left to be displayed in the library so all students can view them. Projects will be sent home later in the month.
