Weeks of hard work and dedication paid off this week as our Grade 6 and 7 students presented their Science Fair projects to schoolmates, teachers and parents. Students chose subjects that interested them and then investigated the topic in depth either by answering a driving question or by designing a prototype.
The quality of the students’ work is outstanding given this is the first time that many of them have led a project of this scope and size through the Scientific Method.
The topics students explored were incredibly varied and interesting, including:
- how the pH value of water impacts plant growth
- how mould grows on hamburgers that have different preservative levels
- using fruit to generate an electric current
- what soap is safest and most effective to clean animals after an oil spill
