Science Fair Goes Virtual

What can happen over 3 days and 19 hours of online Zoom meetings? The annual Lesley Ellis Science Fair!

Despite the new model of teaching and learning that we’re all subject to these days, our intrepid scientists could not be deterred. With the guidance of science teacher Chuck Claus and the use of many technological tools, the weeks and months of preparation paid off and were on full Zoom display!

The volunteer independent scientist/engineer/science educator judges were delighted and impressed with the students’ presentations which were well conceived science/engineering projects. The Science Fair is a wonderful reminder of the tremendous growth in capability and confidence that students experience as they progress through the middle school grades.
