Science Fair Project Sign Up

Your child brought home a Science Fair packet for our second quarter Science Fair. There is a list of 200 science fair topics in the back of the packet entitled "200 Science-Project Ideas that will Wow Judges." So we have a variety of different projects/experiments and to maximize learning from each other we would like each child in the class to do a different project. So after looking over the list with your child and choosing a project you can go to

http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4daaa828a0fa7-science and choose the project that you would like to do. The numbers in the sign-up correspond to the numbers in the topic list so if your child wants to do project number 19 "How does playing video games affect hand-eye coordination?" you would select number 19 on the sign up list. Since only one of each project is allowed it might be a good idea to choose two or three projects that your fourth grader is interested in doing. If the project your fourth grader is doing isn't on the list you can sign up and choose other at the bottom of the sign-up list and in the comments section tell what project your fourth grader will be completing.
