Thursday Enrichment- Science Fair Projects

Starting Thursday, January 8th our enrichment will focus on students designing their own science projects. This enrichment will take five classes to complete, just in time for students to enter their projects into the Yamhill-Carlton Science Fair on February 12th!

We will focus on specific parts of the science project during each class meeting. Therefore, it is very important that students come to all classes. If you need to miss a class, please contact your child's teacher to let us know you will be gone and to find out what you missed.

During class on January 8th we will learn about the scientific method by testing how far we can shoot rubber bands. We will also talk about what makes a good science inquiry questions and brainstorm possible topics.

The class will start at 10:00 and end at 11:30. We will have social time from 11:30-12:00 PM. We hope to see you there!
