Each spring, Montclair upper grade students hold a science fair. This year it will be on April 11th from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. and will be hosted by Ms. Chanter.

For their projects, students will first need to come up with an idea or question that they want to find out about. Then, they’ll create a hypothesis (what they think will happen), and test it three times. After they collect the data, they write up the results and make a poster to present at the science fair.

Ms. Chanter’s suggestion for a website for science fair project ideas is Sciencebuddies.org. Two of her favorite projects are creating a vacuum (a place with no air) and “Is a Dog Right- or Left-Handed?”

Third, 4th and 5th graders are required to enter the science fair, and 2nd graders may enter if they want to. You can do more than one project if you really want to, and you can also have up to three kids work on a project together. At the end of the science fair, the winners get medals and everyone who enters gets a certificate!
