The St. Anthony Middle School Seventh and Eighth Grade Science Fair showcased a variety of interesting projects and experiments that the students had worked on over the course of several months. The students investigated, experimented and researched on topics of their interest. Working independently or in groups, the students followed the Scientific Method to form their hypothesis, experiments, research reports, and models. The display boards, experiment materials, and engineering models were on display for the school students and reviewed by the judges. Students stood by their boards to discuss their projects and to answer questions. All projects were aligned to NGSS standards which included an engineering component. At Parent Night, the students also had a chance to share their projects.
