A Science Fair is held every year with Junior High participants from both 7th and 8th grades.
Mrs. Cindy Hamilton, our Junior High Science teacher, works with all students to teach them how to create an experiment using the process of the Scientific Method.
The 8th grade students did an impressive job on this year’s Science Fair.
The students started working on their Science Fair projects the first week of school and their projects came to fruition on November 17th, 2011. In order to complete this project, the students needed to use the scientific method, write a 700+ word research report about their project, complete the experiment, chart and graph the results, and finally present it to the class. The projects were displayed in the gym for the school students to walk around and ask the Junior High Scientists what their projects were about. At 2:30 pm, the 8th grade students gave their presentations to the teachers who judged the projects. These results end in either a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place ribbon awarded to each project.
The 7th Grade students took place in the 1st Invention Convention project. The students were challenged to create and solve an everyday problem through an invention they had to create. This had to be their own unique idea! Research was done on how the invention would work to solve the problem. Each invention required a detailed set of materials and procedures so this invention could be replicated. Finally, it had to WORK! The students used their creativity to make INCREBIDLE inventions!
