Science Fair Project

Dear Parents,                                                                                                 

In science class it is timeto prepare for the school-wide Science Fair. Each studentin 6th, 7th, and 8th grade will design andperform an experiment. Then, he or she (after showing to a parent) will PRESENTand display the information on a board and write a report to discuss his/herproject. The students have studied the steps needed to investigate a scientific idea, called thescientific method.  Your child haspracticed these steps in scientific thinking and will continue to do sothroughout their science education.  Thisscientific method is the corner stone of investigative thinking.

Attached to this letter is agreat deal of information for the project. Please review the information, guidelines and DUE DATES with your child.Do not let your child wait until thelast week to start this project. Children learn more and produce betterresults when they spend quality time researching and planning their work. Iappreciate your support for this project as we work together in your child’seducation.   


Important Dates:

·        Tuesday, February 23– Bottom Signatures/Information Due- 10 points
