Science Fair



What are the ideal conditions for plant growth?  How does a steam engine work? Where do physical traits come from?  What is the best laundry detergent to use?  Why is the environmental balance of the earth so important?  These questions and many more are answered at the science fair!


St. Anthony School hosts its annual Science Fair in the spring.  It is open to all students 5K-Sixth Grade.  Grades three through six are required to participate.


The purpose of the Science Fair is three-fold:


           *Encourage students to develop greater interest and awareness of science


           *Develop skills in critical thinking, research, and problem solving


           *Develop interview and public speaking skills


Students are also expanding technological adeptness as much of project selection and research is completed through various on-line resources.


There are four judging categories with three age divisions within each one.  Categories are:  LIFE SCIENCE, EARTH SCIENCE, PHYSICAL SCIENCE, AND CHEMICAL SCIENCE.


Students may enter individually or as a team.  A team of judges places entries within each age division, selects a category winner from the first place winners and those winners vie for “Best of Show”.  At least one “Outstanding Display” award is given in each category.



St. Anthony students continually present outstanding projects.  Each year the school enjoys 79%-85% participation.  When the 4K and 5K displays are included, the percentage increases to about 90%.



Our students are challenged to become the scientists, researchers, inventors and innovators of the future!
