Welcome to South School's 2022 Science Fair!

Science Fair

May 20 Update:   The Doherty School open house for incoming 6th graders is on May 26th, which conflicts with the original date of the Science Fair watch party.  Therefore, we have decided to move the Watch party to May 31st, at 7 PM.  Zoom link will be sent out before the event.

We are so excited to have over 60 students participating in the Science Fair this year!  We can’t wait to see all the projects!!

Here is the link to record the FlipGrid for the virtual event, students will need to use their Andover school K12 account to login. Please reach out to your teacher if you need to borrow a chromebook from school to record the video. Personal computers, phones, ipads will work, you just need to make sure you log into your school account to access the FlipGrid.
Videos are due Sunday, May 22nd.  This will give us time to review and publish the videos in time for the watch party on May 31st.
Here are some tips for the recordings:
Try to keep your video around 3 minutes long.
1) Start by clearly stating: Your name, grade, teacher’s name and the name of your project
2) Explain a little about your project: What is the question you are answering? How did you DESIGN the project? What DATA did you collect? What DATA did you MEASURE your experiment with?  
3) Tell us a little about how you DESIGNED your experiment: What materials did you use? Why did you use those materials?
4) Tell us about the OUTCOME of your experiment! What did you learn? Was it what you expected? What ideas did it give you for FUTURE EXPERIMENTS?
 
Have questions? Interested in volunteering? Please contact one of the event co-chairs- Ben Green (ben@crossroad.us) or Marsha Cordio (msacordio@gmail.com)
