Science Fair

The eagerly anticipated 2017 science fair will take place on Thursday, March 9th between 5:00 and 7:00.  Participants will drop projects off at the school on March 8th.  There is a link to the log books provided below and printed versions are available in Mrs. Rabe's classroom. Please see the information packet or ask Mrs. Rabe, Mrs. Lamsam, or Mrs. Smith if you have any questions. 

This year's science fair has some very exciting features.  We will have all of the student projects on display with their ribbons as well as interactive Robotics Club and Outdoor Education booths.  There will also be hands-on experiments set up by the UW Whitewater chemistry department.  The evening will conclude with a explosive science show in the gymnasium.  You won't want to miss it!

This year also offers some exciting new incentives for participants! All blue ribbon award winners will be eligible to compete in the Big Foot Area Schools Association Science Fair which will be held at the Abbey Resort in the Spring of 2017.  More information will be available to qualifying students.  

Will will also be featuring an exciting new "Best of Show" award for the highest scoring project in each division. 

Parents, when you are trying to help your child with his or her science fair project, figuring out how to sufficiently but not overly support can be a challenge.  Check out this article from the Wall Street Journal by Sue Shellenbarger to shed some light on this topic. 

Have fun experimenting and good luck to all participants!
