What’s happening in Rainbow Schools?
March 7: Students participate in Rainbow District School Board Science Fair
More Food, Less Waste and Driver Wake Up are two of the topics that will be explored at the Rainbow District School Board Elementary Science Fair on Tuesday, March 7, 2023. Approximately 54 projects from students in Grade 7 and 8 will be featured at the fair, which takes place at Lockerby Composite School in Sudbury.
The public is welcome to view the projects in the Lockerby gym from 12 pm to 1 pm. The awards ceremony will take place in the auditorium at 1:30 pm. Judges and community professionals with a science and/or engineering background will select 28 projects to compete at the Sudbury Regional Science Fair being held at Laurentian University’s Alumni Hall on April 1 and 2, 2023.
“Students are researching specific areas of science related to curriculum expectations – from computers to earth sciences to the environment,” said Rainbow District School Board Science Fair Chair Cathy Norrie. “Students participating in the Science Fair capitalize on their innate curiosity to inquire and discover.”
She added: “By asking real questions, students become immersed in authentic learning that enhances their scientific skills and furthers their interest in science related careers.”
The Elementary Science Fair is the first step in the journey to the nationals. Sudbury Regional Science Fair projects will be selected for the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Edmonton in May.
