Last month, Emily Carr Elementary students got a chance to show off their scientific knowledge at the school's annual science fair.
"The Science Fair is an opportunity for students, individually or as members of a team, to actually apply and show the skills they have learned in science class," says Emily Carr Principal Harjinder Sandhu. "It is a great opportunity for students to practice problem solving. And it is also a chance to show all students and the school community how important and useful science is."
This year students from Divisions 1 to 8 showcased a wide range of experiments covering topics including: conductivity, planets, citrus power, oil spills, earth's magical and mystical moon, extracting strawberry DNA, soda in the stomach, light and liquid, fish, the periscope, making a spectroscope and glowing water.
Sandhu says a great deal of effort went into each project. Some Carr student scientist will be taking their projects to a larger Science Fair at Science World on March 9th and 10th.
