Science Fair 2014-2015 - Yes, can you believe it!! It's time to start
planning for next year's investigation. Students may get a head start and begin
the process over the summer. Students may email their up coming teachers for
approval and guidance. 8th grade Mrs. Wiley, 7th grade Mrs. Reardon & Mrs.
Whittle, and 6th grade Mrs. Siverson & Mrs. Miller. And don't forget to
start using a log book to document all your work - use a pen,
date every entry, and do not cross out just keeping on writing even when you
change your ideas/plans.
Science Fair Workshop - July 24th 3-5pm and July 29th 9-11am at
the VCMS Media Center - students can stop by during those hours to
get projects approved or discuss ideas with teachers.
Science Fair....Question? Where to start?? Great ideas are
located in news articles. Look below for some interesting topics. Read and
find something that interests you that could be formed into a controlled
experiment (that you can do). Also, observe some previous projects to stimulate
ideas - locate the PDF below. Remember it must have a real application of how
to help mankind - not just a cool experiment (we do those in class:). Students
will all be required to complete a science fair project
appropriate for their grade level if they are in an Advanced/Honors
Science course. However, they are allowed to pick a path or depending
on the topic their teacher will select their path GREEN or
GOLD. GREEN path will complete their investigation with a
power-point and present to their teacher. GOLD path will complete their
investigation with a notebook, tri-board, and present to judges from the
community. The GOLD path will require more comittment from the students, but
will also provide many great rewards. Please view the checklist/due date PDF
below for both paths.
