Students Demonstrate Scientific Method

The St. John’s 4th and 5th Grade science fair was held Wednesday and Thursday, April 22-23 in the LRC. Classes were invited to view the results of the students’ efforts using the scientific method.

The science projects enabled the students to apply everything they’ve learned over the course of their elementary school careers in order to discover some pretty cool and new things about the world around them. In addition to setting up sophisticated experimental procedures and eye catching display boards, students were also judged by their peers and faced inquisition as they presented their findings to the Upper School Biology and Environmental students.
