Budding Scientists at Apollo Elementary

Posted by Jake G. on 26 March, 2014
Scientists of all grades gathered after school in the Apollo Elementary School cafeteria and gym to showcase their science fair projects and try hands-on science activities. Many students animatedly demonstrated their projects to guests and explained their experiments, hypotheses, and conclusions. Both parents and students were impressed with the wide range of projects and the interesting conclusions drawn by students. A couple of crowd pleasing projects included a baking soda volcanic eruption and electricity sparked with a hand crank. Teachers were also on hand to discuss projects with students and present them with awards for their hard work. Along with science fair projects, students were also able to participate in science activities such as creating slime, using Lego robots, and taking a closer look at salmon. Students were excited to try these hands on activities that allowed them to delve further into science.
