Science Fair

Attention 3rd, 4th & 5th Graders!

“Necessity is the mother of invention.” – Plato

Science Fair

Due to school dismissal, there is no due date for 2020 Science Fair final reports! Instead, share your amazing science reports on Facebook.

As each of us knows this year has seen a lot of changes and has impacted how we participate in Science Fair. We no longer have a due date and we hope you will use the extra time to complete your experiments. As ever please communicate with your Science Fair Committee member and complete a final report. Once you finish your experiments, we encourage you to try a new way of presenting them—by video! 

Please consider having your parent help you to create a short video from smart phone, ipad, computer, other to upload to our private Facebook group.  Access to the group will be granted by our Science Fair Chair to maintain the privacy of this group and its contents.  Your parent will need a Facebook account and search for the group called “Rheem Science Fair 2020”. Join the group by clicking on the upper right “join” box. Once you are confirmed, you may post your video and a short message to allow others to see your work. You can also encourage your fellow scientists with words of encouragement in the comments section under their video. Thanks for being a part of the Rheem Elementary 2020 Science Fair!
