The Basswood PTO is sponsoring a Science Project Expo in conjunction with Basswood Family Math and Science Night, providing an opportunity for all 3rd - 5th grade students to participate in a STEM event.
Basswood Science Project Expo Overview
Note: This is a research and experiment Science Project Exposition to teach students they can be real scientists - models and collections will not be included (e.g. erupting volcano, solar system, how electric motors work, tornado in a bottle, types of dinosaurs).
- Presentations will take place at the Basswood Family Math and Science Night on February 28th, 2019 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM.
- Participants: 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders
- Individual or 1 Partner Science Projects
- 3rd Grade Scientists will research a science topic of interest and create a poster demonstrating knowledge gained of their topic to display for judging and at the Basswood Family Math and Science Night.
- 4th and 5th Grade Scientists will use the Scientific Method to investigate a topic of interest, complete research and experiments, write a lab report, and create a presentation board to use while presenting to judges as well as attendees of the Basswood Family Math and Science Night.
