LKSD Science Fair
Conducting an experiment and participating in science fairs helps students develop a variety of skills including critical thinking, problem-solving, time management and communication. Further, science fair projects are excellent project based learning opportunities.
During fair weekend students will have the opportunity to present their experimental findings as well as participate in STEM related activities. This is a weekend filled with opportunities for our students to be curious while connecting and building friendships with students from other schools across the district.
