Science Exploration Week - Mar. 21st - Mar. 25th, 2022
PCR Science Fair: Thursday, March 24th
The annual Palm Crest Elementary School Science Fair will take place on Thursday, March 24th, 2022 this school year. The Science Fair takes place during Science Appreciation Week, which occurs annually and brings an entire week of science related presentations and events to PCR.
What is the PCR Science Fair?
The PCR Science Fair is an annual event to stimulate and promote participation in science. The event is sponsored by the PCR PTA under the supervision of the PTA's Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) enrichment program. Participation is voluntary and open to all PCR students. Most teachers do not require participation in the Science Fair, but highly encourage it. Check with your child's home room teacher about whether your child is required to participate. Students work either individually or in small groups and create a science project, formulate a question to answer using the Scientific Method, and design a project experiment to try and answer the question. Students then run the experiment(s), collect data, analyze it, and present their results in a poster and/or other self-standing exhibit on the night of the Science Fair. Download the Science Fair Packet that will be coming soon!
Where do I get ideas for my Science Fair project?
There are dozens of websites and resources on the Internet with ideas for Science Fair projects. That being said, some of the best Science Fair project ideas are ones you come up with yourself. Think about a topic that is interesting to you, pose a question that you don't know the answer to, and think of an interesting experiment you can come up with to answer that question.
