    5th Grade Science Fair

    This year’s Science Fair has been postponed until Thursday, May 7 from 6:30 - 8pm due to current coronavirus concerns.
    The goal of the JSIS Science Fair is to develop fifth grade students’ skills in investigation and communication when it comes to science. Students will design a scientific question around one of four themes: earth and space science; life science; physical science; or engineering design, which are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards.
    Students will develop a hypothesis, conduct an investigation, gather data, analyze results and present a conclusion. Students are paired with volunteer mentors who will come into the classrooms for a total of five sessions to help guide the students on the scientific method from January to March.

    Judges are recruited from the local scientific community for students to present their final project. Presentations will take place during school hours on 3/19/2020. The entire JSIS community is invited to the evening Family Celebration in the school cafeteria. It is an opportunity for family and friends to see the science poster displays with students informally sharing their science fair experience in addition to gaining some hands-on experiment opportunities.
