The 2016-17 McKinley-Thatcher Science Fair is just around the corner! Judging Day is January 12, so start thinking about your projects now.
All students in grades K-5 are encouraged to create a science fair project. If your child is interested in participating, please complete the contract under “Science Fair details” and return it to the main office. Once we receive your contract, you will receive a packet from PTA with information on how your project will be judged and other criteria you will need to follow.
Please note that science fair projects must be experiments designed to answer a question, not a display of something fun.
A science fair experiment is …
A science fair project is NOT…
Please don’t let financial reasons prevent you from entering the science fair. PTA has scholarships available to help cover the cost of materials your child may need to complete their science fair Project. PTA also has shoppers available to purchase and deliver needed materials to your child at school. Finally, if your child needs help doing an experiment, creating a poster, or preparing for the presentation, as-needed tutoring sessions will be available in December. Please contact Sarah Clark at email@example.com or (303) 594-5259 if any of the above situations apply to you.
