3rd SAIS Eastern Seaboard Science Fair

3rd-SAIS-Eastern-Seaboard-Science-Fair-2This year St. Andrews International School, Green Valley, has the honour of organising the 3rd SAIS Eastern Seaboard Science Fair.

Over the last 2 years the event has proven to be highly successful and entertaining for all stakeholders.

The Science Fair will happen on Thursday 23rd January 2014 and it is the culmination of several weeks of exhaustive investigation into a scientific question that specifically interests each student. An entertaining and informative display of their findings and what they have learned through their scientific enquiry is created to present their ideas.

Last year some of the Science Fair Investigations focused on: creating their own energy sources, preventing ant invasions, the amount of sugar contained in popular drinks and whether or not symmetrical faces are more attractive!

This event is only possible with the kind donations from our sponsors. In the past we have awarded the top three students in each category with cash prizes and chosen a ‘Best in Show’. Students can enter into the following categories Y7, Y8, Y9, Y10 – 11 and IB.

This year we intend to use 50% of the sponsorship for rewarding students for their efforts, whilst the other 50% will be used to support a new program that will create an ongoing educational link with the local temple school and our students. We will aim to promote the importance of literacy, numeracy, healthy lifestyles and science to the local community.

We hope it’s going to get bigger this year! See you there!
