Students have been developing science projects for this year’s Garrison School Science Fair, opening on Monday, March 19 and running through Thursday, March 22. The first two days of the Fair focus on grades K-4, while grades 5-8 will exhibit their work later in the week. The projects are available for viewing from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday, and on Tuesday and Thursday after judging is complete, from 1-4 p.m.
Science Fair categories include: biology, chemistry, earth and space science, engineering and technology, environment, mathematics/computer science, and physics. Winners will represent the school at the Tri-County Science and Technology Fair on April 21 at the White Plains High School in White Plains.
This year there will be two evening open houses for parents and the public. The first will be held on Monday, March 19 from 7-8 p.m. for grade K-4 projects. The second will be Wednesday, March 21 from 7-8 p.m. for the grade 5-8 projects. Free refreshments will be offered both nights.
Garrison School Principal Stephanie Impellittiere said, “The Science Fair is the culmination of our MAD Science Week from January, a program initiated by the Garrison School PTA to get parents and students excited about science. It gives our students the unique opportunity to further explore their interest in science. We can’t wait to see what they come up with.”
