Be a SCIENTIST! Be a SOCIOLOGIST! Be an INVENTOR!

Be s SCIENTIST! Be a SOCIOLOGIST! Be an INVENTOR!

The Sci­ence and Social Stud­ies Fair is an oppor­tu­ni­ty for chil­dren to ask a ques­tion and explore the answers for them­selves.  Your child will love to share his/her project with fam­i­ly, friends and school­mates.  We look for­ward to a great night of sci­ence and social stud­ies!!!

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED

We need par­ent vol­un­teers to make this hap­pen — Please sign up here to vol­un­teer at this suc­cess­ful event.

 

For a suc­cess­ful and awe­some project we rec­om­mend you use the Project Guide which includes a 4-week Project Sched­ule.

A sci­ence or social stud­ies Inves­tiga­tive Project (or an Inven­tion) asks a ques­tion and then uses 5 steps called the sci­en­tif­ic method to dis­cov­er an answer. The term Sci­en­tif­ic Method sounds pret­ty com­pli­cat­ed but it is actu­al­ly 5 sim­ple ideas that sci­en­tists use to solve prob­lems:

  1. What I won­der (Ques­tion)
  2. What I think (Hypoth­e­sis)
  3. What I did (Experiment/Research)
  4. What I found (Results)
  5. What I learned (con­clu­sions) — This process is explained in much more detail in the Project Guide .

Once you’re done, you orga­nize all your find­ings using a dis­play or poster board.  You may even want to include a demon­stra­tion.  Most impor­tant­ly, you will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to explain your results to the sci­ence fair judges, your friends, and your fam­i­ly at the Sci­ence and Social Stud­ies Fair.

There will be 2 sep­a­rate areas set up for projects — K-3 dis­plays in the Gym, grades 4–5 in the Library. This allows stu­dents, their fam­i­lies and guests to view one set of projects while the oth­er is being judged.

A piz­za din­ner includ­ing sal­ad & drinks avail­able for pur­chase in the cafe­te­ria along with a bake sale fea­tur­ing deli­cious desserts from the Mitchell com­mu­ni­ty.

In order to help you and your fam­i­ly plan your SSSF evening, here are the Final Instruc­tions for fair night.

4th and 5th graders have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to earn an Hon­or­able Men­tion or High­est Hon­ors rib­bon.
