Science Fair
Wednesday February 22, 2023

SCIENCE EVERYDAY: “Science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated.” – Rosalind Franklin

The science fair promotes the exploration of the natural sciences. Students are encouraged to use the scientific method or engineering principles to gain for themselves a deeper understanding of the chemical, physical, and biological foundations of our world.

The Science Fair is not a competition, and children are not graded. The student should be the primary scientist, but parental/family guidance is encouraged. Parents should make sure that their child is working on an age-appropriate project that he or she really understands and enjoys.

Science Fair for Students and Family – February 22nd 7-8pm.
Students will setup projects before school on Feb 22, and classes will visit exhibits throughout the day.

Who Can Enter? All students in grades K-5 are invited to participate. Students may work by themselves or partner with other students.

How Do I Enter? Please enter your child by going to the For Sale banner at the top of this website and then to Science Fair. You will be asked to select an option with a board for $5, if you wish to purchase a display board, or an option with no board purchase. Enter the names of all the children who will be participating on the project. Please sign-up ASAP on or before February 15th.

How Do I Get My Display Board? If you purchased a board, your board will be given to your teacher so you can bring it home. Boards will be delivered in classrooms week of Feb 13 so there is time around the Presidents Day long weekend for students to work on the projects. Please let us know if you have not received a board by February 16th.

What Should I Choose? Most importantly, choose something that will be fun for you to do. Think about what you like to do, and come up with a question, project, demonstration, or experiment related to it. Ideas are unlimited, but here are some interest-based examples:

  • Sports/Physics: Which ball is best for distance? Kicking?  Throwing? Knocking pins? 
  • Cooking: Which ingredients taste best? Make deepest brown?  How do sprinkles/eggs/baking soda/etc. impact baking? 
  • Music: How far does sound travel? How does water impact music? 
  • Wizardry/Chemistry: How can you make a ‘cauldron’? A bath bomb? A volcano bubble? Can you make something float?  Fly?  What ingredients impact your potion’s color? Consistency?
  • Forces/Physics: Why do leaves fall slower than acorns? How can you make the furthest paper airplane? Furthest bath toy in water?  Secure egg catcher? Tallest Lego tower?
  • Art: How can liquids float on each other? How do your eyes play tricks on you?
  • Pets/Animals: How can you teach a pet new tricks? How many birds can you find at the Arboretum?
  • Plants/Rocks: What impacts plant growth? Which rocks are stronger than others?

Learning Center – Mrs. Tomaselli can help you find science-related books in our school library.
Glen Rock Public Library - The Children’s Room has a section devoted to books for science fair projects and ideas. The Science section is 550 and Science experiments is 507.

How Can I Display My Project? When your project is complete, you will need to create a display for the Fair. People attending the Science Fair should be able to understand your project by looking at your display, even if you’re not there to explain it.

If you’re doing a traditional experiment, the display should include:
1) Project’s title/statement of purpose
2) Your prediction/hypothesis
3) A description of your procedure (this could include drawings or photos)
4) The record of your results (chart, graph, table, pictures)
5) Your conclusions
6) Your name and grade
7) The names of anyone who helped you
8) Resources you used (books, websites, etc.)
Any materials used in your display should fit on the board if you’re using one or be able to sit on the table directly in front of it. If you want to do something that will require more space, please alert us at least a few days in advance so arrangements can be made. Remember that many people will be viewing and possibly touching your project, so do not include items that are fragile or valuable. Besides showing all the scientific information, your display board can be an outlet for artistic creativity, too. Make it colorful and eye-catching, so people will want to stop and look.

Science Fair Safety Science is fun and sometimes explosive. Please make sure that your safety and the safety of your fellow students is maintained during your experiments and presentation of your project. Your science experiment may require some of the items below and that is great with appropriate adult supervision, but during the display of your project please do not bring to the following items to school: 1) fire, matches, or candles 2) animals, dead or alive 3) dangerous chemicals or sharp objects.

If you are interested in having a National Junior Honor Society member help your child with their science fair project, please sign up here prior to Feb 10. Limited availability.
