Jordan Creek Students Have Fun With Science

Jordan Creek fifth and sixth graders showed just how scientific they could be at the Jordan Creek Science Fair April 20. Students had eight weeks to research, gather materials, collect data, prepare a display and write a presentation.

More than 40 students prepared projects in one of two categories – invention and investigation. Special judges were invited to score each presentation including Principal Nancy Moorhead, Assistant Principal Graham Jones, Superintendent Peter Ansingh, WDMCS Curriculum Director Lauriene Lanich and school board members. They judged the projects on neatness of display, use of graphics and use of artifacts. Students with an investigation project were also judged on their verbal presentation for stating a problem, background research, hypothesis, procedure, results and conclusion. Students with an invention project were judged on their use of problem, research, materials, demonstration and conclusion in their verbal presentation.
