All 7th and 8th grade students will participate in the Saint Ambrose Science Fair in December. Projects are underway and will continue through second quarter. Check the class website for helpful links and all science fair documents.
The Minnesota Science Olympiad is a program devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science, and providing recognition for outstanding achievement. Team competition is patterned after track tournaments with challenging and motivational events ranging from earth science through physics. Events range from hands-on labs to student built machines, from outdoor events to paper and pencil tests. There is also a balance between events requiring scientific knowledge and understanding, and others requiring process and application skills.
