Science Fair 2015
Science Fair 2015
The Wyoming Valley West Middle School will sponsor its annual Science Fair
on Tuesday and Wednesday November 17 & 18, 2015, in the school gymnasium.  Students in grades six, seven and eight will be able to showcase their talents and ingenuity at each of the three grade levels.
                Ribbons will be awarded at each grade level: blue for first place, red for second place, and white for third place.   Ribbons will not reflect the grade assigned by the student’s Science Teacher, but instead be awarded by the Science Fair committee. Students should draw their project ideas from the science curriculum at their appropriate grade levels.
                All entries must meet the regulations set forth by the science fair committee and should have prior approval from the science department chairman.  Parents may assist their children in project construction, especially when safety is a concern.  PARENTS ARE REMINDED THAT THIS IS A STUDENT PRODUCTION AND COMPETITION.  Any student(s) who knowingly alters the registration or entry form will be automatically disqualified from the Science Fair.  The student will receive a failing grade and will not be eligible for any award.  In addition, disciplinary action will be taken. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

Middle School Meet the Teacher Night
