Grade 7 & 8 Science Fair A Success
A science fair project is one of the best learning experiences a student can have. Our society relies more on science and technology every day, and science fairs are a great way for students to discover how the world around them works.
First, the grades 7’s and 8’s chose a scientific question they wanted to answer. They spent time reading books, researching on the computer, or talking to experts to gather as much information to try and answer their question (a hypothesis).
After this, they designed an experiment, got the ingredients they needed, and carefully experimented to test if their hypothesis was correct. Finally, the 7’s and 8’s presented their findings to the students, staff, parents, and other community members of St. Alphonsus school.
The following students conducted exceptional investigations:
5th – Damon Crowe-Buffalo & Maddox Stechyshyn – How do audio drugs effect one’s perception of music?
4th – John Cookson & Nathan Efford – What water temperature will create the most gas in a sugar/yeast reaction?
3rd – Mason Lammers – How will different amounts of glue change how high a homemade bouncy ball will bounce?
2nd – Noelle Daniels & Emma Morgan – When popping popcorn which brand will pop the most seeds?
1st – Katie Johnson – What brand of battery lasts the longest in a flashlight that stays on?
Everyone was deeply engaged with the quality of work that every budding scientist put in. Great job!
