Science Fair Success!

The school was full of energy and excitement for the science fair night as students presented their projects to parents and guests.

Everyone was impressed by the creativity, knowledge, and enthusiasm of the students. Every year I am so pleased with the fact that each student rises to the challenge of this difficult project.

The grade 6s worked tirelessly to create Rube Goldberg machines and they were happy to set them up and run them over and over again. I know the visiting parents and kids were impressed and they loved the individuality and machines.

The grade 7s and 8s worked very hard over the weeks to run their experiments, collect the data, and present their findings, and they were enthusiastic and energetic while presenting their findings to their audience.

Science Fair is a way to develop inquiry, experiential learning, and the rigid skills required for following the scientific method. It takes time, effort, and the ability to learn from your mistakes to have success, but I believe that each student is highly rewarded at this event when they can share their projects with the community.

Thank you to everyone who came to support the evening, and a special thanks to the judges alumni Caelan Redekopp, the grade 9 students, as well as Denise Philippe, Wendy Cellik, Matthew Redekopp, D-arcey Musselman – your feedback is an important way to help the students see where they excelled and where they can improve on their projects.

While all the projects were impressive, a few have been chosen to represent the school at the Greater Vancouver Regional District in April. Congratulations to Max, Calem, Vladislav, Juha, Kiana, Jenna, Piper, Stephanie, Bea, Zoe, and Atom!
