The final product to be displayed at the Science Fair on June 7th will be a poster. I have had students make a large format poster board in powerpoint earlier in the year and will stress students to use the same method for the final poster, because it results in a very high quality product especially if the content of the board is correct.
The method we used in class was to print a large poster using regular sheets of paper and taping them together. This method would be appropriate for the science fair if done neatly.
If you have questions, please contact me.
This is the site with the powerpoint templates if you’re looking for an example.
The STEM Science Fair has been moved up to June 7th and students in my classes should begin their experiments this week so that results and data can be analyzed in class on May12th. Students will have to work on their experiment outside of class during the upcoming 4 weeks to complete their projects. No class time will be given to perform the experiment in class but some time will be given to plan or discuss their progress on the experiment. Students have so far developed their question/topic and done significant research into their topic already and should be ready to hit the ground running starting today!
Had 1 good day of weather and 1 bad day of weather but I appreciate the help and offers from the parents!
Bring a change of shoes or boots if you are attending on Monday.
I still need a lot of Permission Slips from students. I’ve a attached a copy and if I don’t have a slip the day of the trip you (student) will not be able to attend.
EIC Field Trip Slip
Students are researching background information for their project with an annotated bibliography, and will begin working on their experiment over the break.
The majority of the Field Trip your student will be attending, on either the 27th or 20th, will be outside. Please dress appropriately for whatever conditions are present, including wearing shoes appropriate for muddy conditions if it rains before or during your trip. Check the weather the day before.
I am in need of chaperones for a field trip to the Environmental Interpretive Center the Week of March 27th. It will be in the afternoon from about 11:30 to 2:30. Two trips are scheduled, and I need 2-3 chaperones for each trip. Contact me for more details. A clearance will need to be done for interested individuals which will take approximately 2 weeks. So the sooner I know the better.
A packet was sent home with your student today. Please take time to look over the information and if you have any questions ask me directly first. Dates are subject to change if needed. Student ideas will be approved by me before I need any signatures or approval from you. I’ve attached the same information as the packet in this post.
