Science Fair Recognition

0

We want to recognize all students who participated in our Science Fair. The level of projects has risen each year. We see a clearer understanding of the scientific process from our students’ displays. They understand a hypothesis and also what a variable is. Most projects included data and a visual representation to support their findings. Some projects included a journal where students wrote their observations, thoughts, and conclusions. All of these are important parts of a Science Fair project.

This year’s fair was highly successful and we want to thank our coordinator, Tonya Penney, the Science vertical team, and our volunteer judges. We couldn’t have been successful without your help!
