STEM School for K-8 Grades | Tuition Free Public Charter School

stem graphicALL SSCS students are welcome to participate in the SSCS STEM Fair. Students in K-2nd will complete a class project that will also be judged. Students in 3rd-5th grade are required to participate in the STEM Fair. A STEM Fair project challenges a student to solve a question using the scientific method. It is a great way to excite children about science, teach them to think like scientists, develop their organizational skills, and enhance their writing and oral presentation skills.

We will be talking about the STEM Fair in class, but the bulk of the work will be completed at home. We hope that you will offer your child support and encouragement while monitoring his/her progress in the coming weeks and months. The SSCS STEM Fair is meant to be educational as well as fun. The main goal is for the students to be inspired to explore the world around them and have FUN while learning about science, technology, engineering, and math. At the same time, we ask that you keep in mind that the project is your child’s responsibility.
By limiting your involvement, your child will receive the full educational benefits of the STEM Fair. Also, a successful project does not have to cost a lot of money! This packet is to help you keep on track with the STEM fair project and help you with questions you may have about the STEM Fair.
