Elementary Students Participate in Science Fair
Posted: May 1st, 2012
Bob Jones Academy fifth- and sixth-grade students recently participated in two week long elementary science fairs. The fairs focus on the application of the scientific method and emphasize problem solving through a series of well-defined steps. Each student formulated a scientific hypothesis, conducted experiments, recorded and graphed the results, and drew scientific conclusions based on those results. The students then prepared display boards to showcase their hard work. Students displayed their projects in the elementary school’s main cafeteria. BJU and BJA science teachers and science authors from BJU Press served as judges to assess the projects and provide students with guidance and constructive comments. Each week ended with an open house for family and friends to view the student displays, and the winning projects in each class received ribbons and trophies.
