2015 Science Fair Winners
1st Place Winners (K-5th Grade)
Thursday, April 7th
What to Expect: All students MUST register their science projects, in order to be judged and to receive the latest very cool science t-shirt. If you are doing a science project with a friend you ALL must register individually. At registration, projects must be designated as “Scientific Method” or “ Scientific Presentation”, where Method has hypothesis, data, conclusion, etc. and Presentation is more of an informational/report project with no data or experimentation involved. Both types will be judged and awarded.
To register online click here. Registration must be completed by March 31!
Preferred registration is online but if do not have access to a computer you may fill out a paper registration form you can get from the office. Think library computers and classroom computers! If you need assistance filling out the registration form online ask your librarian or teacher.
Judging will take place during the day and be completed by end of school day. Your teacher will have the time you are to be at your science display to be interviewed by the judge.
All students are invited and encouraged to participate in the science fair! We'll be doing Science all day long! Students can submit projects as complex or as simple as they would like. Projects with hypothesis and conclusions are welcomed along with simple themes. Please no live animals in any projects.
The students will have the opportunity to view all the science projects on display, vote for People’s Choice Award and participate in the hands on science throughout the day. The projects will be judged during the day and the Awards Ceremony will begin at 6:00 pm.
This is an exciting event that encourages students to think like young scientists. During the next few weeks your child will be designing a science project. We hope you agree that the educational benefits are numerous, as students develop skills in writing, oral presentation, creative thinking, and problem solving.
Most of the work will be completed at home. For suggestions on helping your child through this process — from choosing a topic to the final report‐see the Website: "Parents Get Involved" at:http://discoveryschool.com/sciencefaircentral/scifairstudio/parents.html.
Encourage your child and monitor his or her progress along the way. Your support is key to a successful project, but please do not allow your involvement to extend any further in order to assure equity and promote student learning. It is important that your child wrestle with problems and try to solve them. Guide your child whenever and wherever you can, but let the final project reflect your child's individual effort and design. Also, keep in mind that a successful project can be completed for under $10.
