8th Grade Science Fair

8th Grade Science Fair

The annual eighth-grade science fair was held on January 31, 2018.  The eighth graders set up their displays in the morning and then presented the exhibits to the judges.  After the judging was over, upper-elementary students viewed the exhibits and learned a lot from the presentations.

The originality of the projects this year impressed the judges, and the eighth graders were extremely knowledgeable about their topics.  In addition, the students’ project boards gave great illustrations and details about their research.

Thank you to the eighth-grade science teachers, Mrs. Fyssas and Mrs. Morris, for organizing the science fair!  Great job, eighth graders!
