La Entrada STEM Fair – February 6-7th, 2019

Students – Get ready for the STEM Fair!  The STEM Fair is a fun event that allows you to work in groups with your friends, to experiment, to make, to build and to present your ideas.  This self-driven project gives you the opportunity to be creative and think out of the box. Start imagining what you would like to discover and with which friends you would like to work. Projects can be either an engineering/Maker subject where the students invent or demonstrate a new technology, or in the more traditional science field, where they develop and test a hypothesis. Of course, these science projects can be in any of the scientific fields, from social sciences, to biology, to physics.  Please register your project here on the 2019 Registration Page or email participant’s name(s), grade, teacher and contact emails to register@laentradasciencefair.org.

Parents – The La Entrada STEM Fair prepares kids for more complex projects and team work. The STEM Fair process includes posing questions, problem-solving, experimentation and communication.  These are all skills all our children need to be successful in our ever-changing world.  The STEM Fair is a fun way to start mastering these skills.  Please encourage your child to participate.  You can find more information about projects and How To’s by going to our Helpful Links page.

All 6th – 8th grade finalists and honorable mentions are invited to the San Mateo County STEM Fair, an inspiring event held at the Hiller Aviation Museum in early March (www.stemfair.net).  The finalist from the San Mateo County STEM Fair will go to the California State Science Fair.  In the past, La Entrada students have been selected to participate in the California State Science Fair – a very prestigious commendation.

The La Entrada STEM Fair is February 6-7th.  Students should begin thinking about their projects now.  Planning in advance makes the process more fun AND advanced planning is a skill that will serve all our kids for their entire academic and professional lives.
