Have you had a burning question keeping you up at night? Well, now’s the time to find the answer to that question! The Due West Science Fair is looking for young, eager scientists willing to do a little experimentation and show us those answers. Again this year, 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students may enter a group project (two students per group – must be in the same grade level).
Students will be evaluated by a group of independent judges on three criteria:
- Project – Was the scientific process (hypothesis, variables, conclusion) followed? It doesn’t matter if your hypothesis is proven wrong. It’s all in finding if it’s right or wrong that counts.
- Science Project Logbook – Was the process recorded in a detailed step by step manner?
- Board – Is your science fair board neat and all the necessary data displayed?
- Presentation – Each student should be able to give a brief description of his or her experiment and answer the judges’ questions.
NO LIQUIDS OR FOOD WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE MEDIA CENTER AS PART OF YOUR SCIENCE FAIR DISPLAY. PLEASE TAKE PHOTOS OF THESE ITEMS IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO INCLUDE THEM AS PART OF YOUR PRESENTATION. WE APOLOGIZE IF YOU WERE PLANNING ON USING THESE, HOWEVER, THEY HAVE CAUSED ISSUES IN THE PAST ATTRACTING BUGS AND DAMAGING MEDIA CENTER PROPERTY.
