TEAMS Fair

TEAMS

South Colby loves science, and we are celebrating with a TEAMS Fair! Join in the fun as we share our learning. Our South Colby TEAMS Fair is later this year.  It will be held on Tuesday, May 1, 2018.  Evening viewing will be from 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Our goal in conducting the South Colby TEAMS Fair is to engage kids in the joy of technology, engineering, art, mathematics and science, as well as develop the understanding of the scientific method. Please have your child follow the Scientific Investigations Format provided for you, taking into account your child’s age and grade level.

Participation

Every South Colby student K-5 is encouraged to enter the South Colby TEAMS Fair.  However, some individual teachers may have specific requirements and the assignment is mandatory.  Children may enter a project individually, in pairs, or groups.  You will find links to websites that may help you and your child choose a science project when you click on the TEAMS Project Ideas in the blue box.  

General Rules for 2018 South Colby TEAMS Fair:

  1. Parents should “guide,” rather than direct, their child in organizing and completing the project.
  2. Each child’s project should be accompanied by a neatly written explanation, following the Scientific Investigations format. (Scientific Investigation Planners will be sent home when entry forms are received.  If a science project is required by the classroom teacher, the Scientific Investigation Planner is located under Handouts in the blue box.) Any handwriting or typing should be done by the child if the child is capable of completing the task.
  3. Each project must be free standing for display on a desk, no larger  than 36” x 48”.
  4. Each child’s name should be clearly displayed on the project.
  5. Each child should decide ahead of time whether his/her project will be displayed as a project to be looked at only, or if it can be interactive allowing other students to touch or try the experiment.
  6. Each child’s project should also cause no harm to living things or the environment.

Entry Forms

The official entry form for the 2018 South Colby TEAMS Fair is also located under ​Handouts​ in the blue box.  Please return it by Friday, April 13, 2018 if your child is going to participate.  

*Your child’s teacher may require a different due date for the entry form.

If you have questions about any part of this format, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher.
