Approximately 500 fifth through eighth grade Lincoln Public School students participated in the annual Lincoln Public Schools Science Fair at the Lancaster County Event Center. Students could demonstrate projects in one of three areas: Earth Science, Life Science, or Physical Science.
Science Fair Director and Fredstrom Science Teacher Rochelle Settles said the committee was excited to have so many kids registered for the fair. "The Science Fair is so important because it gives students who have an interest in science an outlet to show their learning. We want kids to be involved in science, we want kids to go in to science careers."
Experiments and demonstrations ranged from the traditional vocanos and slime to creating smoke shapes and powering robots with chemical and physical reactions.
"We want kids to have a good experience, to be successful, complete their project and to feel it's something they really accomplished so it turns them on to Science," commented James Blake Science Curriculum Coordinator.
