The San Antonito Science & Engineering Fair is on its way!  This year the fair will be held on Thursday, January 31st, 2019.  The Science Fair Committee would like to offer a few pointers and words of encouragement (especially for those beginning kindergarten parents!).  

  • Our goal is to ignite the students’ interest in science and engineering, to have them explore some concept and have fun.  

  • Facilitating the project is different from doing it for your child. Make sure you do not do all the work.  However, do not leave your child to flounder, winding up with a negative feeling toward science.  

  • Help your child choose a project in which he or she truly has an interest. Make it fun!  Let them wonder, let them investigate, let them find something out!

  • Remember, learning can be messy!  As long as your child (and your home) is safe, all you have to do is provide the time, materials.  Natural curiosity will take your child to a higher level of thinking.

  • For grades K-2, encourage the students to explore science in their own way.  They do not need to follow the scientific method.

Display boards are available now from the school office for $3 each.  K-2 just need a flat piece of poster board, which may be easier for them to write on.
