What is a Science Fair?
A typical science fair is a collection of experiments done by students. Each experiment clearly demonstrates the steps of the scientific method that the student followed to complete the experiment. Science fair projects are usually done on your own (in small groups). The science fair takes place on one day where all participants set up a booth to showcase what they have done.
Our science fair will be completed in class and showcased in a digital format. A digital format means once your project is completed, you will put your end product, along with pictures of your steps along the way, online and students can view each other's projects on a computer. You will have the opportunity to view a number of projects from both 6th grade teams.
