Haynes Science Fair

sflogo2The Science Fair is voluntary for students in grades K through 5. Students can work alone or with a partner (friend, classmate, sibling). Students display their projects at assigned stations in the auditorium or hallways. Each project is visited by a Scientific Reviewer who asks questions for the young scientists to discuss their discoveries. Families and friends tour the auditorium and hallways to visit the creative projects. Each young scientist receives a certificate and an award to commemorate the event. Please review the 2016 Science Fair Guidelines for further information and instructions.

STEaM Carnival, March 16th – A New Look for the Science Fair

Posted on: February 4th, 2017 by webmaster

This year, the Science Fair is changing focus. Rather than being an evening to showcase experiments conducted at home, this will be a daytime event – a STEAM Carnival where all of Haynes students will join in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math focused exploration.

The STEAM Carnival will be held during the school day on March 16th. There will be: virtual and augmented reality stations where students will explore other times and places; obstacle courses to challenge the laws of physics; simple machines used to create Rube Goldberg devices; Stop action animation; Coding; Robotics, and more. A STEAM Carnival is a hands-on, immersive experience for students.

All students will rotate through many different experiences-some will also demonstrate and guide other students. We would love to have volunteers for the actual event itself, but if you do not have time to come, please consider donating some of the consumables ( such as origami paper, straws, paper towel tubes, etc. ) or loaning items ( like drones, marble runs, and erector sets.) The students will be learning all about it in Friday meeting soon, and I know they will be as excited as we are!
