Monticello Elementary Fifth grade students experience concepts first hand at annual Science Fair

5th graders participate in Science Fair

Monticello Elementary fifth graders participated in an annual Science Fair to help them better understand and reinforce Next Generation Science Standards that are implemented in their classrooms on a daily basis. Students showed off Science experiments that they conducted and the art work they did to market their hypothesis. The hope is that events like this will spark further interest in STEM classes that could lead students to impressive career related options.

Two students from each fifth grade classroom were recognized for their efforts. They received a City Engineering and Design Building set to encourage students to use creativity, logic, and problem solving to create different city designs. They could use the gift to make a crane, design bridges or build towers. The students' work was judged using the following criteria:

*Project topic is unique or innovative, shows creativity

*Project shows originality in its design and procedure (based on student's age and experience)

*Well planned and organized

*Project was based on a question the student wanted to investigate

*Contained title, hypothesis, procedures, experimental question, data collected, results and conclusion

*Visually appealing

*Student's discussion indicates sound understanding of what was done in the project
