Science Fair

from:Martin, Natalie

to:Science 2

SciCore Academy's science fair will be held on March 4th at 6:30pm in the gymnasium.

Students in grades 1-4 may do a "demonstration" or "display" project on a topic of their choice. More ambitious students in grades 3 and 4 may do a research or engineering project.

I have discussed many topic choices with all students in grades 1-4. If your child has chosen a topic (parents and teacher must approve), then please get to work researching the topic right away and ordering any parts or materials you may require. A topic must be chosen by Friday February 5th, so your child can discuss it with me for my approval.

The topic the student chooses must be something of interest to the student. A parent or teacher should not force a particular topic. This is important to keeping the student engaged in the science fair project.

Requirements for the fair include:

a tri-fold poster displaying data, pictures, or explanations
a typed report that explains what the student has researched/experimented (I am not setting a page-length requirement)
a separate composition-type science fair notebook (explained below)
model/demonstration/experiment if it makes sense for the topic
Students will need a science fair notebook (a new composition notebook) where their work is documented along the way. Pages must be dated and work done summarized, with drawings and observations. Drawings are very much welcomed and encouraged. The notebook should start off with the idea for a topic, whether is started as a general or very specific idea. We want to see the student's thought process during the whole journey. Write about any successes or failures in the project. Write new things that were researched, or draw a diagram they found that helps explain the topic. This notebook must be bought to the fair with their poster, and report.

I will make periodic "notebook checks" in class to see what is being done in the notebook, and to keep students on the right track. So please make sure it comes with them to school on days that they have science class.

A science fair project can be a wonderful learning experience for your child. We encourage all parents to help their children define their project, work on it on a regular schedule, and bring it to successful completion. I hope you have fun with it!

Math Fair

from:Martin, Natalie

to:MS Math I

We have started talking about the math fair in class, but I also want parents to know that the math fair is coming up next month (now scheduled for December 4th). Dr. Poulos will be sending out an email to parents describing the requirements for the math fair this year. All students in grades 4-12 are required to participate.

The math fair involves choosing a topic of interest to the student, researching it, perhaps making a project, and displaying it on a poster board to be presented by the student the night of the fair. The chosen topic should be at or slightly above grade level. More details will follow. For now, we will focus on choosing a topic in math that interests your child.

4th Programming Final Project

from:LaRosa, Emily

to:Programming 3

4th Graders,

The Final Project that we have been working on for the last 3 weeks will be due by 11:59 pm June 3. I have included the project assignment sheet and each person's unique picture in case anyone has lost theirs. You do not have to replicate the picture exactly, just try your best to be similar. Leave out the extra details like face or circles if you are struggling with the basic shape of the picture. If you need help or have any questions on how to do something on your drawing you may email me. Be sure to include your file and a description of what you are struggling with. Make sure you mail in your project by June 3!

Science Fair

from:Martin, Natalie

to:Science 2

Hello parents, I wanted to let you know that the science fair is scheduled for February 20th this year. All students in grades 1-12 must participate in the science fair. Your child should make a project in a science area that interests him/her.


Students must have a separate notebook dedicated to the science fair. All of the thoughts your child has on the science fair, topics he/she is thinking of, notes, etc must be written in the science fair notebook-with dates-so it is like a journal of progress.


Here is a schedule of when I would like to collect the notebook periodically and check for work done:


Monday 1/26: Hand in the notebook with one or two sentences written in it about what area of science you'd like to study (examples of "areas of science": human body, weather, geology, plants, insects, planets, diseases)


Friday 1/30: Hand in the notebook again with at least a page of notes taken about the area of science that was chosen. (either list facts found about that topic, or write paragraphs about something you read in books or found online). This work should lead up to your child choosing a more focused topic.


Parents must help make sure your child writes where that information was found. Book title/author, or website name.


Monday 2/2: Hand in the notebook again, this time with a title for the project, and a short summary of what exactly you will do for the project.


Monday 2/9: Hand in the notebook again, with a plan for the project (what will go where on the poster board, and plans for the model and/or experiment). This should be plan should be detailed, with drawings or diagrams.


Friday 2/13: Hand in the notebook again so I can check your progress.


Wednesday 2/18: Hand in the notebook for the final time.
