Exciting SCIENCE FAIR news! We have prizes and scholarships to announce!
1. The CLASS WITH THE MOST PARTICIPANTS (based on completed projects) will receive an ant farm and related books!
2. Mad Science is sponsoring Trace by awarding the SCIENCE FAIR WINNER a free spot in their upcoming after-school science program.
The Mad Science class will be Wednesdays 22/3-17/5, 2:40 – 3:40 PM. The winner will unfortunately miss the first session but will join for the rest of the classes.
3. The PTO is sponsoring a NEEDS/ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT based SCHOLARSHIP to the same Mad Science class for another student. Scholarship applications are open to all the science fair participants – teachers will hand them out with the confirmation forms and handbooks later this week.
(If you’re not participating in the science fair but want your child to be considered for the scholarship – please leave a letter addressed to “VP Academic Affairs” in the PTO mailbox with the student name, teacher/grade and justification for why this child deserves the scholarship.)
Please submit the scholarship application by Feb 28th – to the PTO mailbox!
Questions? Please contact Pia, the Trace PTO VP of Academic Affairs, by writing firstname.lastname@example.org.

We hope to see you at our upcoming events. In February we have our Father Daughter Dance. In March we have our Spring Candy Sale, a restaurant fundraiser and the Science Fair. Don’t forget our general meeting on March 7th at 7pm. Come find out what’s coming up at Trace and how you can be a part of it!
The primary purpose of the Trace Science Fair is to foster a love of science. We want this to be a positive experience for all students, so all students will get a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place ribbon. In addition, all students will receive a small participation prize (gift card). We will also award a classroom prize for the class with highest number of participants!
The Trace Science Fair is a one night event where students get to present the work they’ve done on a science project. It is a culmination of what may be many weeks of work depending on the nature of the project. (Recommendation: Plan ahead & start early!)
The presentation consists of a poster (on a PTO provided poster board) that explains the project and a chat with a judge. The poster should explain the project fully and give a title, hypothesis, materials, procedure, results, conclusion and bibliography. (The poster components may vary depending on the project type. Please make sure to always include a bibliography to show where students learnt about the project! The source can be an online resource also.)
The science fair judges will talk to the students about their project and ask questions about the method, methodology and findings. Please support your student by talking to them about their project, this will help them prepare talking to the judges. By talking about the project, you will also help your child truly understand and learn from the project.
The students choose what they want to work on. The handbook lists several websites with ideas for projects. For our science fair we’ll have 5 types of projects:
