STEM and Science Fair Registration due on January 11, 2019!

Walnut Acres Elementary

 

Get ready for the 2019 STEM and Science Fair on February 7! 

Walnut Acres students in K-5 are encouraged to think like young scientists and submit a project in any science-related or engineering field by FRIDAY, JANUARY 11.  Projects can be as varied as their interests: sports, music, art, rocketry, animals, psychology, food, computers, the environment or whatever interests them.  Through their projects, students discover science is all around them.

All children in Grades 4 and 5 will be involved in group projects coordinated by their respective science teachers.  For group projects they will be filling in their entry forms in their classrooms.  However, they can also submit individual projects for STEM Science Fair.

 

This year the projects are divided into two types:

Science Experiment: This is an experimental type of Science Inquiry project. It uses elements of Science and Engineering Practices, to carry out an experiment and test an idea. 

Engineering Design: The use of scientific principles and the demonstration of creativity and ingenuity to overcome a real world problem or show a better way of doing something.  

Application forms, schedule, guidelines, and handbook are located at the Stem and Science Fair page.  Some helpful tips for parents are attached to this email.
