The Science Fair will take place on Thursday, April 26, 2018 .
Students’ science projects will be on display for students and their families to visit. In the days following the science fair, students will have the opportunity to present their projects to their teacher and classmates during class time. A volunteer parent may attend these presentations (please arrange this with the teacher). This handbook is provided to help your child successfully complete a science fair project. Please help, encourage, and support your child’s best efforts in putting together a project that is interesting and understandable to her/him. However, please do not do the project for your child. Everyone has a scientist inside them. This project will hopefully unleash the scientist inside your child and provide them an opportunity to learn about the scientific process. The science fair is not a competition. Children and parents who have questions about getting started on their project can talk to their teachers and/or the science fair co-chair Pavan Desikan ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). Once your child has identified a science fair project, you and your child’s teacher will approve his or her science fair proposal . Proposal forms are included in this handbook and are due to the classroom teacher by Thursday, March 29 th . Completed projects should be brought to the MP room before school on the morning of the Science Fair( Thursday, April 26 th ). It has been 21 years since the first Palo Verde Science Fair, with excellent participation from all the grades each year. Every student from K through 5 is encouraged to participate in the Science Fair. Participation is mandatory to for students in grades 4 and 5. Last year our students prepared over 200 science projects ! We look forward to even greater participation this year. Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation. Sincerely,
