The Project Fair – Not Your Average Science Fair!
Grades 2, 3, and 4
The Project Fair is an annual event that is a pre-cursor to the STEAM Expo activities in which students will participate beginning in Grade 5. This long-term project provides teachers with opportunities to expose students to many STEAM and literacy skills, such as defining a narrow researchable question, designing an experiment, prototype or model, interviewing, creating surveys, experimenting, gathering data, analyzing, summarizing the data and finally, presenting (both written and oral). Students select their own project ideas within an overriding theme.
