Science Fair

SCIENCE FAIR REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

Click on the Register button to begin registration for your student

Participation in the Science Fair is open to all Wolf’s Crossing students in grades K-5. This project is an optional, at-home enrichment activity. The purpose of the fair is to encourage interest in science, to help students develop organization, problem-solving, research and time management skills, but most of all to have fun with science!

  • Students, with the help of parents, will design and conduct a science experiment to find the answer to a question or problem, then create an exhibit to display at the Science Fair on Science Night 2018.
  • Students should be prepared to briefly discuss their project with judges and answer questions; however, formal presentations are not required. Faculty and personnel from District 308, Wolf’s Crossing Elementary School, and High School students will serve as judges.
  • Students may submit a project with a partner (only two students per project). Partners may be of different grades/classrooms. Judging of joint projects will be based on highest grade level of partners.
  • Each project will be given an assigned space on a table. Students should use standard size tri-fold boards for their display, no greater than 36 inches wide by 15 inches deep.
  • A parent or chaperone must accompany each participant.
  • Each student will receive a Science Fair medal for participation. A Certificate of Achievement, based on judges scoring, will be award to top entries from each grade.
  • The PTA is awarding a prize for the most outstanding project. More details to come!

STEM Education - Why It's Important in Elementary Education

In recent years, there has been a lot of buzz about STEM education, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Math. More and more, business leaders, educators, industry leaders, and even the leader of this country, are emphasizing the importance of a STEM educated workforce on the future economic success of the US. Studies have projected that by 2018, over 8 million jobs will require a work force with a Stem based college education.
