Scientifically Speaking...

The creation of science fair projects as a classroom assignment, Science Club expectation, or just the love of experimenting resulted in learning and fun across the district. Some projects featured ways to filter water to address the global water crisis while others tested methods for making tasty tajin/soda drinks without the beverage overflowing!

The process of researching, creating, testing and communicating findings resulted in increased knowledge - a WIN for all students!
