Asalaamu Aualaikum Families,

The top 3 students from each class will then continue onto the Grand Science Fair. Winners of the Grand Science Fair will be encouraged to register for the Ohio District and State Science Fairs.
The classroom Science Fair contest will take place the week of February 5th, 2018.
- 5th grade will present on February 5th, 2018
- 6th and 7th grade will present on February 6th, 2018
- 8th grade will present on February 7th, 2018
The top 3 winners from each grade level class will then compete at the Grand Science Fair that is scheduled for Friday – February 9th, 2018 at the Sunrise Academy Gymnasium. Please remember that students will be presenting the same science projects if they go to the Grand Science Fair.
Participating in the Science Fair is an enjoyable way for students to learn how to conduct experiments to solve problems.
