Your child has been invited to take part in Cwmclydach Primary school Science Fair 2017, an exciting event that encourages pupils to think like young scientists. During the next couple of weeks your child will be designing a science project at home that uses the scientific method to solve a problem. We hope you agree that the educational benefits are numerous, as pupils develop skills in writing, oral presentation, creative thinking, and problem solving. The information your child has brought home includes a list of ideas for possible projects as well as guidelines for completing a project. Your child’s project may be one of the following: demonstration, experiment, or a collection. Please go through the information and help your child select a project that will be interesting to your child and will be appropriate in terms of difficulty and resources available. We ask that you encourage your child and monitor his/her progress along the way. Your support is key to a successful project, but please do not allow your involvement to extend any further in order to assure equity and promote student learning. It is important that your child wrestles with problems and tries to solve them. Guide your child whenever and wherever you can, but let the final project reflect your child’s individual effort and design. Complete Science Fair Project is due Wednesday 15th March 2017. The Science Fair will be held on Friday 21st March 2017 and will be showcased to members of Tonypandy Community College staff who will help judge the projects. Prizes will be given for the winners.
