The eight graders at Roland-Story have been working on problem solving in their science classes with teacher Jeff Staker, and they will put their hard work on display during the annual Science Fair Open House tomorrow night (Thursday, Feb. 13) from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Roland Middle School. Students began the process the first part of January by selecting a topic to investigate. Then they researched for information and conducted experiments. The six-week process culminated in the students showcasing their work in a display, which will be presented during the open house.
The projects are evaluated in three major categories: the scientific method, creativity and the relevance to issues in today’s society. All students had to complete an individual project. And there were possibilities of 2 to 4 students working together to solve a problem. Team projects were in addition to their own individual projects.
The open house is open to the public.
