Science Fair

Part of the middle school Science curriculum is learning about the scientific method. The 6th-8th graders practice this method when doing their weekly science labs. For the science fair project our students are working on, they have been given the opportunity to choose a category of science that they are interested in (for example: earth science, space science, physical science and life science to name a few). Using the chosen category of science, students have come up with a problem that they would like to find out the answer to. Students needed to research information about their problem and then be able to test it out through an experiment. Before testing out the problem, they wrote a hypothesis and listed the all of the needed materials for the experiment. Step by step procedures explain exactly how they went about performing the experiment. Students write down observation notes, measurements, etc to display what was found in graphs or data tables. Lastly, students show what they learned from doing the experiment and if their hypothesis was correct or incorrect. If the hypothesis was incorrect, students will explain what they could do better if the experiment was to be completed once again.

  • Voting for the best experiment will take place that night. There will be prizes for the top 3 experiments in each grade. The attendees will be voting.
  • 6th Grade will present from 5:00 - 5:30 pm in Mrs. Maruscak and Mr. Bartosik's room
  • 7th Grade will present from 5:30 - 6:00 pm in the science lab and Mrs. Grew's room
