  • Twain Science Fair Is Coming

      Twain Fair Science fairs involve students in the practices of science and engineering, requiring them to apply those skills to a topic of interest to them. Doing science is key to understanding science. We are very excited to let you know that Twain will again be holding a science fair this year in March and that all students are invited to participate.  The goal of our fair is simply to encourage an interest in science and engineering and to educate students about the scientific method.   As parents, you can play an integral role in this year’s fair by encouraging your child(ren) to participate, helping them brainstorm different ideas and possible topics your child may wish to pursue, and providing guidance in the completion of the experiment and science board.  As we know some of you may be overwhelmed with this but know your child wants to participate, there will be a Science Fair link on the Twain website that you can check out.  There will be ideas, examples, an explanation of the scientific method and a wide variety of resources to help you and your child.  No panic necessary! There will be a kickoff assembly in early February to engage and interest students.  Registrations will be due by February 17th and then your child has several weeks to use the scientific method for his/her experiment and to create a board sharing the process.  The fair will be held on March 20th and 21st.  Be looking for more details soon!
