STEM Fair: Annabel, Cagney, Cookie, Lacey, Geuliette, Romeo Groups

STEM Fair Board

This is an example of a STEM Fair board for you to use when planning what you need to put on the board.  The only difference if you building something rather than a traditional science fair experiment is that you will not have an hypothesis, and your data will be a detailed description of your building experience.

Please make sure to take several pictures of the experiment or build.
In BOTH Cases, make sure there is an explanation of the science behind your project.  For example, if you are making slime, explain why slime goes from a liquid into slime—what is happening.  If you are making a motor, explain how a motor works.  If you have selected a more psychological test, explain the science behind this or any previous research that led you to explore this topic.

If there are any questions, please let me know so I can help you.

STEM with Mrs. McVay: Romeo Group

We will begin researching and building a small hydroponics set up.

Students will present their conclusions and findings for the self sustaining ecosystems; what they did, what happened and what they would change if they were designing the system again.  All work will be done in class.

STEM Fair Topic and Outlines are due no later than Friday, 9/22.  

STEM FAIR UPDATE: Mrs. McVay

By now, everyone should have received the STEM fair packet.  If not, please see me, or link to the following to print a copy.STEM Fair 2017-18

I am excited to see many student’s already have ideas of what they would like to investigate further!  I can’t wait for November 7th!  If you’re stuck for an idea, please let me know.
