25th annual Zoetis-LPS-GSK Science Fair

Roughly 300 students from Lincoln Public Schools participated in the 25th annual Zoetis-LPS-GSK Science Fair, held March 5 at the Lancaster County Event Center. 

The fair is open to students in grades five through eight. Once they choose a topic of interest, students think of a question to answer, research the topic, write a hypothesis statement, conduct an experiment, record and review the results, and state the conclusion. They also prepare a visual display and an oral presentation for the science fair.

Here’s a sampling of questions that students asked and explored through their projects:

  • How do photovoltaic solar panels work?
  • Can liquids have different density and not mix with others?
  • Does the temperature of a hockey puck affect how it slides on ice?
  • Will your memory improve with exercise?
