We appreciate families who got involved in STEM Challenges and Science Fair projects. Siblings helped one student figure out if music in the background helped someone do a better job at homework. Another student did an experiment to see if her family members had the same fingerprint pattern.
Some of our students used their Science Fair projects to solve problems. What keeps flowers fresh the longest? We found out that flowers in distilled water with pennies was the answer. An out of the box solution that we will never forget.
One of our students took science to a higher level. He used his microscope to collect his results and reach a conclusion. Everyone got to see his samples. He did a great job!
One student used the Science Fair to help him answer a question that we often wonder. What brand of battery lasts the longest? We learned that the Energizer battery lasted the longest in his experiment.
One Science Fair project that was popular involved worms. How far do they travel? Our student was disappointed that the worm didn't travel far at all.
Evan won first place in our school science fair. He went on to win an exemplary ribbon at the Regional Science Fair and an honorable mention ribbon at the State Science Fair. Way to go, Evan!
We are excited to see what experiments and inventions our 3rd-5th graders work on.
Our Science Fair will be on November 14th. The hardest part of the process is choosing what to do. Have your child pick something he is interested in and she is curious about. Please have them return their project selection form on Monday, September 30th.

We hope you have fun with the project!
