5th-8th Grade Science Fair, Thursday, April 28 @ 5:30 p.m.

Join us on Thursday evening for our annual 5th-8th Grade Science Fair. The assignments will be as follows:

  • 5th Grade will be in the Library and Computer Lab blacktop. Come check out their single variable experiments in Life, Physical, and Earth sciences!
  • 6th Grade will be in the Gym. Their projects explore different environmental issues.  Groups researched an existing environmental problem, then generated their own original data locally, through surveys, various tests, and engineering projects.
  • 7th Grade will be on the Back 40. Twenty teams of entrepreneurs will showcase their human health inventions and businesses. A group of "venture capital investors" composed of faculty and board members will select the top three teams.
  • 8th Grade will be in front of the 6th Grade Lockers. Expect roller coasters, water balloons, and a little fire as the teams run their Rube Goldberg Machines

Please volunteer to help set up and/or clean up for the 5th-8th Grade Science Fair by signing up HERE. Hospitality begins at 5:30 p.m. and the Science Fair is from 6-7 p.m.
