Keep Calm and Experiment On!

Join fellow LHCS students at the 2017 Science Fair on Thursday, March 16 from 6-8 p.m. at the Upper Campus! The fair is a fun, noncompetitive event to celebrate learning, get excited about science and encourage more science-related exploration in the future! All participating students have the opportunity to showcase a science-related project to volunteer judges, as well as fellow participants, friends and families.

Students in all grades (K-8) are encouraged to explore a topic of interest and display what they’ve learned. You’re invited to present a project by yourself or with your friends!

Topics are endless, but some ideas include:

Science in My Backyard: Nature, plants, weather, and animals

Science in Art or Music: Colors, sounds, shapes, forms and architecture

Science in My Kitchen: Temperature, leavening, tastes, soaps and fizzies

Science in Motion: Pendulums, airplanes, cars, sports and marbles

Science Behind Space: From exploring the stars and planets in the galaxy to learning about NASA’s latest discoveries, project possibilities are endless!

 

When planning your project, please keep these things in mind:

  • Choose a style such as experiments, observations, demonstrations, reports and inventions.  (See the links below to help generate some ideas. The school media centers and Linden Hills Library will also set aside science-related books.)
  • Projects should be created at home with parent guidance but should show the student’s best personal effort.
  • Project displays should be self-standing and clearly labeled with name and grade.  (Tri-fold cardboard display boards are available at most stores that sell school supplies.)
  • Space is limited — please fit displays within a 2-ft footprint, no taller than 3.5 ft.
  • Students may display projects that were created for another event during this school year.
  • Group projects are welcome!  Please register each student in the group and indicate partner name(s).
  • Projects involving food should be nut-free.  If food samples are to be offered, please display a list of ingredients.

 

Once again, we will also have a popular guest exhibit from the Bakken Museum!

 

PARENT HELP IS NEEDED! Volunteering is a fun way to be involved (and it's easy!). Email Jen Seeger if interested.  Sign-up information for the evening of the event will be posted soon.
