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.
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:
- What I wonder (Question)
- What I think (Hypothesis)
- What I did (Experiment/Research)
- What I found (Results)
- 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.
