Science Fair

posted Nov 3, 2017, 7:26 AM by Jessie Lawrence

The 2017-2018 CGE Science Fair will be held on Monday, December 11th! Just like last year, the District is no longer including projects of third graders or younger. K-3 students are welcome to complete a Science Fair project and participate in the CGE Science Fair, but these projects will not be judged or considered for inclusion in the District Science Expo. If you would like your lower-grade student to complete a project, please contact his or her teacher for information.

Information and grade-level requirements have already been sent home for 4th-6th grade students. Fourth grade students are required to complete a model and a research paper, but may choose to complete an experiment instead. Likewise, 5th graders are required to complete a demonstration and research paper, but may choose to complete an experiment instead. Sixth grade students are required to complete an experiment. Remember, only experiments will be judged by District judges and considered for inclusion in the District Science Expo. 

All projects, however, will be judged at the CGE Science Fair. We are excited to announce that students from Santa Fe High School will serve as judges for 4th and 5th grade models and demonstrations.
