SCIENCE FAIR MENTORING NIGHT
Do you have a science project in mind but want to take it to the next level? Join us in the MPR for our optional
Science Fair Mentoring Night on Wednesday, February 13th from 7-8 pm to encourage our students to move ahead with critical thinking and solid reasoning. Students frequently find an idea for a science fair project, take a little data, then describe it or maybe even put it on a plot. They then decide if they were "right" or "wrong" in their hypothesis. Mentoring Night is the perfect time to brainstorm, ask for help or get all of your questions answered. We will have "Science Experts" to help you with anything you need. If you have any questions, please contact Anica Dubey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration for the Science Fair is now closed. We have more than 85 projects!
Parents we need your help! We need parents to volunteer as science fair judges to interview/evaluate our young scientists! No science experience required and interview questions will be provided. Participants can register and volunteer using the link below. Questions? Contact Anica Dubey at email@example.com.
