STEM Fair reinforces confidence in scientific process and presentation skills for first grade girls

Throughout the year, first graders have been learning about the scientific method and the engineering design process in their STEM class. After choosing topics of interest in April, they applied research skills investigating information about their topic using books and online resources. They formulated an investigative question, proposed a hypothesis and designed an experiment or engineering solution. A couple of students noticed that ticks are a concern this time of year, so they designed and made a prototype of a tick remover. The topics included rainbows, water filters, cars in motion, transpiration in plants and many more.

Independent scientific investigation reinforces several learning objectives such as developing an idea, planning and conducting an experiment, time management and organization, and presenting to an audience. These girls did a tremendous job showing their research and conclusions!

Students wrote about ice cream shops, pizza parlors, bakeries and bookstores, to name a few. They were charged with grabbing the attention of their audience, clearly articulating their stance, and providing reasons to support their position.
