Students Share Science Enthusiasm at Tri-Sci Symposium

Posted by User Not Found on 21 June, 2016

Science-minded students from Issaquah, Liberty, and Skyline High Schools conducted independent research experiments that they recently showcased at the Tri-Sci Symposium. All student experiments were performed outside of the classroom and engineered by students over the course of two months. To showcase their dedication and enthusiasm, students shared their experiments and presented their findings to teachers for evaluation on a strict and detailed rubric based on the Next Generation Science Standards. Student scientists also differentiated and tailored their presentations to many visiting elementary students and parents. During the symposium DECA students had items for sale, visiting community engineers were on hand for discussions, and Robotics teams demonstrated their machines.

Issaquah High School Physics Teacher Carolyn Peterson shared, “Congratulations to all students for dramatically demonstrating maturity of both knowledge of the scientific process as well as building skills of communicating their findings.”
