Students, Start Your Projects!

Science Night is Coming, May 1, 2015!

 

Are you interested in science? Curious about how things work?

Now it’s YOUR turn to be the scientist!

 

All students, grades K through 6th, are encouraged to take part in Science Fair!

(Your teacher will let you know if doing a project is required in your class)

 

A successful science fair project does not have to be expensive or time-consuming. However, it does require some planning.   Some projects (for example, growing plants) require weeks to get results, or you may need to try your experiment more than once. Project boards will be due at school on or before May 1st and will be displayed all around the gym that night, to show off your great work!

 

** there will also be an Egg Drop Contest open to all grades (more info to come later)

For more information (including project guidelines) about Science Night, please click here.

 

All entries will also be submitted into the Shoreline STEM Festival.

 

The Shoreline STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Festival will be a one day extravaganza for the Shoreline community!  There will be activities for kids of all ages.  For kids actively interested in science, have them complete a science project and enter it into the science fair.  In addition to the science fair, there will be hands-on science activities and demonstrations.  There will also be a career expo with exhibitors showcasing exciting career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math fields.  For more information about the festival, please click here.

 Today's computers are a creative tool, more like a box of crayons than a calculator. Major math skills are no longer required. Persistence and creativity are the most important skills for coding today. Not only do our students learn coding skills, but the process teaches them so much more.  It strengthens logic and thinking skills; builds confidence and determination as they practice trial and error problem solving.
