Science Fair

  Lakeview Elementary PTA
is proud to announce 

the 2021 Lakeview Science Fair

on Thursday, February 18th 

 

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 12, 2021

Lakeview is excited for the upcoming Science Fair on Thursday, February 18th. The science fair is for any student in K-5 grade.

 

Your student has the option to have their project (using the scientific method) judged or as a demonstration only. Students will upload the presentation of their projects to Flipgrid via the Flipgrid App or via https://flipgrid.com/.  You will receive instructions on how to upload to Flipgrid when you register for the Science Fair.  The videos must be uploaded by midnight on Wednesday, February 17th. 

 

If you elected to not have your project judged, you do not need to bring your project to the school.

 

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:

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.  If students complete their project in a group, there will be only one prize.
