Hello Students and Families,

Itís Summer !!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I had a wonderful year with my students and am looking forward to another year of science adventures. 

 

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 upcoming 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....Question?  Where to start?? Great ideas are located in news articles.  Look below for some interesting topics.  Read and finds 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.  GREEN path will complete their investigation with a notebook, tri-board, and present to judges from the community.  The GOLD path will require more commitment from the students, but will also provide many great rewards.  Please view the checklist/due date PDF below for both paths.
