A February highlight at the Bellevue Cedar Park Campus is our Science Fair. Students in grades three through six begin preparing during the month of January. They first select a topic and develop a hypothesis for their experiment. Then using the scientific method, they proceed to conduct their experiments, log their findings, observe their results, and write their conclusions. Each student presents their project before their peers and are judged on the organization of their display board, the quality of their printed report, the creativity of their experiment, and the excellence of their oral presentation. First, second, and third place ribbons are given out on the night of our Open House. All students come away with a great appreciation for how to conduct a successful science experiment and how to convey their findings to an audience.
