We are excited to be taking part in this year’s Primary Science Fair run by Birmingham University and The Ogden Trust. The children have all been invited to participate by doing out their own science project.
The project can be an experiment to answer a question, a problem and solution or a research project. It can be on any area of science that interests your child, for example ‘How many stars can we see?’, ‘How does a hovercraft work?’ or ‘What would my family eat on the ISS if we were with Tim Peake?’.
When your child has carried out their investigation or research they have to make a display board to communicate their learning to others.
This display board should show the project title/question/problem, what your child thinks the answer is, what they did to investigate their question, what they found and a conclusion. If they want, they can include a small model or experiment and/or project notes.
All projects need to be in school in the week beginning Monday13th March and our School Science Fair will take place on Thursday 23rd March. A panel of judges will help to choose the best projects to represent the school at the Primary Science Fair to be held at Birmingham University on Thursday 30th March. The children who did these projects will have the opportunity of competing with other local primary schools to win a prize or award for their work and visit the University.
