On Tuesday, students in Honors Science grades 7 and 8 met with judges from the community as they presented their research as a part of the annual Circleville Middle School Science Fair and STEM Day.
Overall, 53 students participated in the locally held science showcase.
Student research, demonstrations, and presentations were scored according to four areas:
- Oral, Written, and Visual Communication – addresses who well each student’s communication skills and documentation tell the story of the research assignment at hand (including relevant background research, data acquisition, and analysis).
- Experimental Design – referring to the student’s grasp of the scientific method, hypothesis, data collection methodology, and analysis.
- Depth of Understanding – addressing what students learned about the science behind their project before and during the experiment.
The highest scoring students, or individuals receiving a rating of ‘superior’, will go on to compete in the District 8 Science Fair in Lancaster in March of 2020 which is open to students in grades 5-12 attending schools located in Fairfield, Licking, Pickaway and Perry counties.
We would like to thank all of our presenters and their place of business within the community for their support of our judging process.
