Science Fair After-school Help Session

Do you want to do a science fair project, but need a little help to get started? If so, you can stay after school from 2:15-3:15 on  Wednesday, November 28, for help. We will meet in the STEM lab where teachers will be available to help with whatever stage of the scientific method you are in.

If you choose to stay, parents will need to send a note in to school stating that the student will be staying and how they will go home at 3:15 (car or ASP).

There will be 2 more help sessions before science fair projects are due – December 11 and January 8.

September Book and Take-Home Challenges

A great big THANK YOU to all the students who completed our take-home challenge of creating something useful out of a 12 x 12 perfect square! I love seeing everyone’s different ideas and interpretations of the project!

Check out the video of projects!

Congratulations to our STEM book of the month winners! They took home their own copy of Perfect Square.

Science Olympiad Applications Available!

Applications for Science Olympiad are now available! Applications are due to Mrs. Smith no later than October 8. There is a box at the entrance door of the STEM lab to place completed applications. Don’t forget to give your previous year’s teacher the teacher referral form ASAP so they have time to complete it. The team will be announced on Friday, October 12 and practices will begin October 25.

T-shirts will be $12.

The following link is for the weebly that will be used for all Science Olympiad information and communication.
