Putting a Digital Twist on the Traditional Science Fair

Posted on Friday June 21, 2019

Last week, the Grade 3 and Garde 7 students at St. John the Evangelist Catholic School held a science fair with a digital twist. The Grade 3 French Immersion class built and programmed robots that could better the earth through the planting of seeds. Students showcased their ideas to the school community and staff.

While the Grade 7 French Immersion class-built structures using Rube Goldberg machines. They also hosted an Egg Parachute challenge which involved building a structure that held an uncooked egg that was dropped from the school’s roof with a parachute. The goal was to see if the egg survived the fall. The fun is all in the creating and design using Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) thinking.

A special thank you to teachers Mme. Jeffery, Mme. Esposito and Custodian, Mr. Hoover for their support and help. What STEM activity can you create this summer?
