S.T.E.A.M. Fair - updated format this year!
This year, we are updating our science fair format. Instead of calling it Invention Convention, we will call it a S.T.E.A.M. Fair.
S.T.E.A.M. is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
The ways in which students can participate are outlined below. Please note that we will once again be offering the Pasta Bridge Contest.
Grades K - 3 = Invention (optional)
Grade 4 = Science Experiments (mandatory)
Grades 5 & 6 = Invention or Engineering Design (mandatory)
Mrs. Lenz has introduced the invention opportunity to all CES students.
Mrs. Clark is working with all fourth grade students on the scientific method. Each student will be participating by researching and completing an experiment as part of a class assignment.
Mr. O'Brien, Mr. Kalkreuth and Mr. Barile have introduced all fifth and sixth graders to the new engineering option this year. Students in fifth and sixth grades have the opportunity to invent something or participate in one of three engineering challenges:
Engineering Challenge 1 = Catapult
Engineering Challenge 2 = Balsa Wood Bridge
Engineering Challenge 3 = Buoyant Vessel
Our S.T.E.A.M. Fair Open House and Pasta Bridge Contest will be held on March 25th. The judging of student inventions will take place in the morning on March 26th. A competition for all three engineering challenges will take place in the afternoon, which will be very exciting!
