ROSELLE, NJ - Do you know what causes leaves to change colors or how many germs are on your television remote? These are just some of the dozens of topics covered by students at Dr. Charles C. Polk Elementary School at the annual Science Fair on Jan. 31.

Students in each class were challenged with doing research, conducting an experiment and creating a presentation. After all of the students finished their projects, three finalists and one honorable mention from each grade were selected to present at the school-wide Science Fair.

The annual event drew a large crowd of families that were eager to hear the finalists present. Before the fair started, families were treated to a homemade dinner.

Presentations by students that were not selected as finalists were hung up around the school for all to enjoy. A group of four district administrators and one PTO member judged the finalists on throughout the night. 

“I am always so proud of our students and each year, their experiments always amaze me,” said Principal Andrea Harry. 

The winner will be announced at a later date during an in-school assembly. is the official electronic news source for your town! To get your free daily Roselle or Roselle Park news, click on your town.
