Science Fair 2017

Science Fair 2017

Join us on Friday, February 10th, to delve into the scientific explorations created by our ever-curious students. Every year Rainbow students spend the winter months preparing for the Annual Science Fair in February. They make hypothesis, design surveys, research technologies, analyse data, and draw their scientific conclusions. Topics range from local to global, technical to theoretical. Bring your family and friends along for this incredible day of scientific inquiry!

Please check the schedule below to know when each grade is presenting their projects. Most grades present more than once. Each grade will be hosting their guests in their own classrooms. If you have any questions, Kate at the front desk in the main office can help guide you to the correct classroom. We hope to see you there!
