The 2012 St. Finn Barr Middle School Science Fair is coming up soon. Sixth and seventh grade students will be use the many methods of scientists to investigate a scientific problem of interest to them. Students will design an experiment to test their ideas and create an exhibit that will showcase their methods, results, and conclusions. The benefits of participating in this fair are numerous as this process will help our students develop skills in critical thinking, writing, oral presentation, experimentation, creative thinking and problem solving. The projects will be on exhibit during Catholic Schools week. Selected seventh grade exemplary exhibits will have the exciting opportunity to enter the San Francisco Science Fair hosted by The Randall Museum.
