The SFX Middle School Science Fair takes place annually. Students in 6th-8th grade spend several months planning, preparing, and executing a science experiment and present findings through a Keynote presentation to judges. The event culminates in the display of all projects and a brief awards ceremony. In addition to the acquisition of core science skills, students also grow in their ability to organize information, to write with fluency and clarity, and to present content orally with confidence.
Each year, select entries are recommended for participation on the regional level. From there, students may also be selected to advance to competition at the State Science Fair.
This year, science fair judging takes place on Wednesday, January 18th from 3:15-6pm. This process is for 7th-8th grade students only. If you are interested in serving as a judge, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The fair is open to all families and is scheduled for Thursday, January 19th from 2-2:40pm in the gym and Xavier Room. All 6th-8th grade students will be available to share and discuss their projects at this time. Mr. Van will share this year’s judging schedule with 7th and 8th graders once it becomes available, and will also post this information to edmodo.com.
