Science Fair

4th and 5th Grade Science fair 2016

Thursday, November 10th 2016

The 4th and 5th grade students at Olsen Elementary School spent the first two months of the school year learning how to design and conduct an experiment and communicate their results using visual and oral presentations. Each student designed his or her own experiment and poster board to display to our panel of judges and their family and friends. Student projects covered a wide range of topics, from chemistry to biology to engineering! Our judges from the Port Aransas community and the Marine Science Institute commented on the impressive level of creativity and originality in the students' experiments, and the scientific literacy our students exhibited.
