Science Fair and Program

  Lakeview Elementary PTA
is proud to announce 

its Annual Science Night

on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 

6:30-8pm in the gym/cafeteria

 

This is an opportunity to get Kinder through 5th grade students actively involved in science, problem-solving, and critical thinking. 

Registration is due by February 21, 2020

Lakeview is excited for the upcoming Science Night on Tuesday, March 3. The science night is for any student in K-5 grade and will be held in the gym/cafeteria.  We plan to have booth demonstrations presented by BNHS clubs & our local TC Vet to check out!

 

The projects will be completed outside of school.  A parent’s or adult’s role is to encourage and guide.  

 

Need Ideas?  The best projects are often original, but please encourage your child to view some Science Fair Websites such as https://www.sciencefaircentral.com/ & www.sciencebuddies.org & Pinterest to learn more about projects that may interest your child.

SCIENTIFIC METHOD

  • What is the QUESTION?

  • How did you RESEARCH?

  • What was the HYPOTHESIS?

  • How did you EXPERIMENT?

  • What was the DATA (Observations, Graphs, Pictures)?

  • What CONCLUSION did you find?

 

 

Each participant will be expected to have a display board highlighting their project and their scientific process. The project must be set up in the gym no later than 3:30 on the 3rd and taken down after the awards ceremony at 8 pm that same day.  Your child will check-in and receive a table assignment. 

 

A panel of judges will review the projects and help choose 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each of the grade classifications.  Students will not be present for judging. Prizes will be awarded for K-2nd and 3rd-5th grade. There will be a short awards presentation to announce the winners in each category.

Please be sure your student follows the guidelines which the judges will be using in their judging process.
