The Class of 2020 showcased their science skills at the annual Fifth Grade Science Fair on Wednesday, May 15. After working on their projects for several weeks, students presented their experiments and results to faculty, family and fellow students.

In preparation for the Science Fair, students designed their own experiments while following the scientific process to collect data in an ethical manner. After analyzing their collected data, they drew conclusions about their results and created presentations to share with their peers.

The students all used seeds or plants for their experiments. Student projects included examining germination rates between different species, how pollutants effect the germination of seeds, the effectiveness of fertilizers and how different light sources impact photosynthesis.
