Join us Tuesday, April 11th, at 6:30pm for the 2nd Annual LCA Science Fair along with Exchange City’s Market Day!
All LCA families are invited to this event, please feel free to invite family and friends as well!
Have you ever considered what would happen if you omitted baking powder from a recipe? Or what static electricity is? Perhaps you want to understand how an engine works or desire to learn more about a scientist’s contributions to chemistry. Have you ever wondered which paper towel really does absorb the best? Or maybe you have a cool collection or model of scientific interest you would like to tell others
about. If so, this science fair is for you! All of the above fall into the different categories listed below.
- Investigation: E.g. What would happen if butter is left out of a cookie recipe or the testing and comparison of various consumer products like soap, foods, cleaners.
- Demonstration of a scientific principle: E.g. Which falls faster a feather or a bowling ball.
- Construction of a model or kit: E.g. Build a volcano or simple machine.
- Presentation of a collection: E.g. Seashells, leaves, rocks.
- Research project on a Scientist: E.g. Albert Einstein, Henry Cavendish
- Discovery: E.g. How does an engine work? How is cheese made?
Participation in the Legacy Science fair is an optional activity and can cover any field of science (physics, biology, earth science, chemistry, and consumer science.). We would love to encourage our young
scientists to ask questions, make observations, test their ideas and learn to draw conclusions or explain what they know.
- Register on the form below.
- Please include a parent’s name, the student’s name, student’s grade and if electricity will be needed. Deadline to register is March 22nd. A registration fee of $5.00 per space is due by Class Day on April 5th.
- Each participant will need to have a freestanding display. A trifold board will be provided with your registration.
- One-half of a round or rectangular table will be the space available to display each project. There will be a limited number of electrical outlets available.
- Each completed project should include the student’s name, age, and grade level.
- The student should give credit to resources used (e.g.: scientific journals, internet, etc.)
Your first step is to choose a topic. The Internet and your local library have abundant resources to assist you in this process. Of course your family and friends are great resources too!
Be sure to invite your family and friends to this event!
