Congratulations, Kol HaKavod, to all of our Students and Teachers for participating in our Science Fair last week- pictures attached! Thank you to Mrs. Fishbein for coordinating the Science Fair and to our judges for taking time out of their busy schedules to come out and support our scientific inquiry! We consider ourselves particularly fortunate to merit such prestigious judges;
- George Lockhart, Department of Charter Schools
- Tom Medcalf, PBC Science Department
- Cristin Tabachnick, PBC Science Department and
- Sarah Temple, Assistant Principal Somerset Canyons High School
The judges themselves were impressed by the projects and commented on the obvious scientific learning that is happening in our classrooms. We had several notable projects- both team and individual in 3rd-5th grade! 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners were announced in several categories earlier this week and 1st place winners will be participating in the District Science Fair in May.
