Coming up in January and February Jackson County 4-H will be offering a Knitting Spark Club and a Computer Coding Spark Club. More information and sign up sheets can be found by clicking on the links below.
It is time to begin thinking about the LCS science fair, to be held on March 21 at 6:30pm. Students will be working on their science fair projects at school from January through March. Steps in the process include:
- Introduce the scientific method
- Select a topic
- Conduct research and write hypothesis
- Plan and perform experiment (at home)
- Analyze results/make conclusion
- Write report/presentation
- Design display
- Finish display and rehearse for fair
Students in grades K-2 will complete group projects and receive a participation ribbon. Students in grades 3-8 will complete individual projects and will have their projects judged for a first, second, or third place ribbon. One champion ribbon will be awarded for each grade level (3-8). Science grades will also be given for various steps of the process.
What is the role of the parent in the completion of the project? After receiving project approval, parents will be asked to assist students in gathering supplies and completing the experiment. The cost of the supplies will vary depending on the experiment. Students will also need to purchase a 3-way display board from the school office later in the process.
The topic and question selection will need to be approved by January 25. Websites that might help in the selection process are shown below. Project Approval forms were sent home with students this week. Additional form can be found by clicking here.
If you have any questions during the process of creating the science fair project, please see Mrs. Isaacs or your child’s science teacher.
Thank you for your continued support of the science programs here at LCS.
