Monty’s Science Fair 2018

  • Informational video link

    March 29, 2018 (Thursday after Spring break). Sign up before March 9, 2018. Sign-up sheet is attached below. Your student can also ask his/her teacher for one. Turn in your sign-up sheet to your teacher or scan it to dsalinas@chla.usc.eduOne signup sheet per group!

     Please open the information packet attached. Students will have the option to participate in 3 different categories: Research, Demonstration, and Report.

    Research: Research projects will be judged by the best use of scientific method and quality of oral presentation. This category will compete for first and second prizes in each grade level (K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6). Make sure he/she follows the Scientific Method: Question -> hypothesis -> experiment (or proposed solution) -> results -> conclusion.

    Demonstration: Demonstration projects will be judged based on “the most original and elaborate.” This category will compete for first and second prizes in each grade level (K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6).

    Report: Report projects are encouraged if the student does not want to compete but still wants to learn about science. This category requires a poster or display, but it does not require oral presentation.

    Students will have to reach a minimum score of 60% to qualify for first or second place. Students can work in groups (maximum of 4 students per group) or individually. Parent involvement is encouraged to mentor, guide, and assist the students to develop their projects. Assist as needed, but let your student do the work. How much the student learned from doing the project will transpire on how well he/she presents and answers questions. Please open attachments for rubrics.
