On Tuesday, March 21st, we held our 4th Annual Science Fair At the Science Fair, students in grades PreK-5th showcased their collaborative and independent investigations. In PreK, classes displayed project work investigations related to Science: For Penguins, this meant sharing their exploration of wild cat habitats, while the Narwhals shared their work on the science of sound from their music study.
Beginning in Kindergarten, science class time is set aside specifically for the completion of a whole-group Science Fair project. The project in Kindergarten is especially integrated – students study family and their homes in during Social Studies Project Work, then build their home from recycled and found materials in Integrated Art, then learn about electricity and circuitry in Science, finally installing an LED bulb to light their model home. First graders took on an engineering project this year, designing and testing insulated containers. Second graders followed the scientific method to answer an exciting question: How does electricity affect the growth of plants?
Beginning in 3rd grade, students complete individual experimental projects. They follow the scientific method to develop a unique question, hypothesis and experimental set up before conducting their investigation and creating a display board to communicate their results.
Our students did an amazing job this year, and it was a true joy to share their work with the community on Tuesday. Enjoy the slideshow of images from the Science Fair!
