Science Fair 2018 is Over

What follows is shown for posterity!

March 20th, 2018

Save the date, Tuesday evening, March 20th for a fun-filled evening of science and technology poster presentations and demonstrations. The Science Fair is a great way for students to develop and apply an interest in science and the scientific method. Students will exercise their curiosity, approach real world problems in a systematic and scientific way, and apply creativity towards questions that interest them. The Science Fair is also a low pressure opportunity for students to present work to a reviewer in a brief non-competitive, informal interview. All JLS students are welcome to participate.

Science Fair Registration

Every student participant must register for the JLS Science Fair using the (click here) Student Registration Form. Students who register by Thursday, March 15th, will be assigned a spot at the fair with other students who share the same science teacher.

The Science Fair cannot happen without parent volunteers. While we need a little help with check-in and set-up, the biggest need is for Interviewers, people who are willing to listen to students describe their work and ask a couple low-pressure, informal questions. You don’t have to be a trained scientist or engineer to make a good interviewer. You just need to show an interest in our students and their work. Not sure what to do as an Interviewer?
