Science Fair

Science fair, a whole week of celebration!

Please join us for a week of science ending with our fantastic science inquiry day on Wednesday February 5th, where community scientists will be visiting our school to bring us their expertise and knowledge into the classrooms.

Important dates:

  • Project registration deadline: Friday, January 24
  • Science projects due: Tuesday, January 28
  • Science inquiry day: Wednesday, February 5
  • SARSEF registration closes: Wednesday February 26.

Offering a science inquiry fair program provides evidence of a school’s commitment to science education and the relevance of science to our daily lives.

Students gather their project ideas from the world around them and from their own daily experience. Gaining skill investigating that daily experience and reporting and defending their discoveries using the scientific method are tools that can serve our students well outside the fields of science and into everyday life.

All Sunrise Drive K-5 Students – individuals, groups or entire classes – are encouraged to enter a project in our annual Science Fair.

To get ideas or information about how to present a science project go to https://sarsef.org/.

Note for Parents & Community Scientists

We need Community Science Volunteers! Sunrise Science Inquiry Day would not be successful without visits from our community scientists. These people spend the day engaging our students in amazing science activities.

Past participants have included The Physics Bus, TEP, Bio5 Ambassadors, UofA Geologists, Biosphere, just to name a few.

If you are interested, or want to recommend someone, please fill in the Visiting Scientist form – it’ll only take a minute!

Calling Volunteers for Science inquiry day

Our inquiry day cannot only be successful with the participation of scientist but the help of our parents and other family members. We are always in need of volunteers to help us in the classrooms and their rotations trough the day, Please considers donating couple hours of your day. Please go to the MTK Signup form to volunteer.

Thank you!
