Calling all our K-6 science sleuths! It’s time to start getting prepared for AOA’s 8th annual elementary science fair. Using the scientific method, you will pick a topic that piques your curiosity, test your hypothesis through experimentation, analyze your results, and present your findings.
This year’s initial elementary science fair information meeting will be held on Friday, March 5 at 11 a.m. (CT). Mrs. Kuehn will be there to answer all of your questions and help guide you through this fun event! You will also see this event on your calendar on your Genius Dashboard and should have also received an email with information.
All K-6 students are encouraged to participate in this year’s science fair. After completing your investigation, you will complete a report, AOA teachers will judge all projects, and then we will hold a presentation of experiments and awards on Monday, May 3 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (CT).
Don’t miss out on this fun opportunity! We can’t wait to see what you discover!
A Special Note for Parents
We know with busy schedules this may seem like one more task, but we strongly believe this is important for students to complete. Participating in a science fair is one of the best ways to learn. Through science experimentation, students integrate many different subjects and skills they have learned. Students also develop confidence and a spirit of scientific inquiry. Most importantly, studying science and completing investigations reveals God’s divine power and allows students to get a glimpse at how God has created and sustains the world with order and purpose. When we study creation and marvel at the things God created, we praise Him. Likewise, when we provide students with opportunities to investigate and explore, we also give our students a place to thank God for his infinite care for us and all of His amazing creation.
