The Varnett School Northeast celebrated Science Week April 16-20, 2018.
Students in grades kindergarten through six participated in our annual Science Fair. We had more than 30 projects submitted. The projects were displayed throughout the school and judging took place Wednesday, April 18. Community members judged the science fair projects and the winners were announced at our Family Science Night Thursday, April 19. More than 50 families participated in this great event.
Students had an opportunity to participate in a variety of hands-on science activities. In addition to participating in the Science Fair projects, students made recycled items in celebration of Earth Day. Items were made from milk and egg cartons and other recycled materials.
The judging criteria included knowledge gained, scientific method or engineering goals, creativity, individual work, thoroughness, the accuracy of conclusions and the quality of the written and visual presentations. The judges were Stephanie Jackson, volunteer; Annette Coleman-Bracey, volunteer and Shonah Jefferson, community partner of J&S Jeff's Kitchen.
