Icky-Squishy Science on January 25: We will jump start the science fair “season” with an exciting show at the January 25 all-school meeting by Jessica Garrett. Ms. Garrett is a former science & math teacher and has written a book about science experiments that may be helpful for anyone needing science project inspiration:

Project help on February 5: If your Fiske scientist is stumped for a project idea, encourage her/him to come to a project help session in the school library. Lexington High School students will help Fiske students brainstorm and think through project ideas and Ms. Kishpaugh will have books on various science topics available for checkout. 

Science fair registration due by February 16:

Science fair project titles due by March 2:

All science projects should be done at home, taking care to always be safe!

A display is a nice way to show your science project work, but please keep it within a 36” width.
Please do not bring food, live animals or latex products to the science fair.
