6th Graders - Denver Regional science Fair
6th Graders – Have you ever thought about participating in the 2016 Denver Regional Science and Engineering Fair? It’s not hard, and it’s a fantastic way to show off your talent and your work in a realistic setting to scientific experts!
By moving beyond our Shelton school fair to the next stage of the International Science and Engineering Fair, you will be rewarded with an amazing feeling of accomplishment, and you will meet other students that have similar interests and self-motivation. Moving on isn’t for everyone, but if you do choose to move forward, we have a team of enthusiastic mentors available to guide you along every step of the process.
All it takes is your drive to succeed in something a little outside your normal routine. I promise, your mentors will be alongside you at every step, and we will assure your success in preparing and participating at this enriching event.
How would you continue with your school S&EF project and take it to the Regional S&EF? It’s not hard. There is a little additional registration paperwork, and your parents have to be onboard, so have a discussion over dinner, and then hop onboard!
Paperwork must be completed prior to your actually running your experiment or building your engineering idea prototype.
Do you have any questions? Please contact me (Rob) at firstname.lastname@example.org, or ask a question at:https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/shelton-elementary-science-fair.
I challenge the 6th grade class of 2016 to have representation from at least one or two students, and would be pleased with more!
