More than 70 students from fourth through sixth grades have been working since November preparing their projects. Students have worked under the supervision of their homeroom teachers to develop inquiry-based, original research experiments.
The students presented the outcome of their research at the science fair.
Students’ projects were evaluated by Bethel College education students to appraise the student work. Students were allotted 10 minutes to present the highlights of their research to a judge who scored them on the merits of the work based on a 100-point scale.
