STEM Fair

Dear Parents,

                   

NRE will hold a Science Fair for grades K-6th on January 31st. There will be an open house from 5:30pm-7:30pm for families to check out what our NRE student have accomplished.  The purpose of the STEM Fair is to encourage students to develop a greater interest and awareness of science inquiry and technology and to develop skills in critical thinking, research, and problem-solving.

                       

Science Fairs provide many benefits to students, which encourage their educational and even social development.  Perhaps one of the most valuable benefits is the chance to show, explain, and talk about their projects to others.  While the teachers will be available to advise students, the initiative and responsibility belongs to the student. Parents and other adults are encouraged to support as necessary; however, the work should be done by the student.  Each student participant must be able to demonstrate and explain what was done. The students will be required to create a display board to show their findings for others to see and understand.

                       

Please feel free to utilize the science project packet to organize your project.  STEM projects are often the first experiences that inspire students to take the next steps to becoming professional scientists and engineers.

Regards,

Northridge STEM Fair Committee
