Events/CompetitionsK-8 Science Fair:This year's Science Fair took place on Friday, March 3rd, 2017 from 9:00 am-12:30 pm.Every spring Eden Prairie Community Education hosts the K-8 Science Fair. It's a great opportunity for your student to show off their science knowledge and get positive feedback from community members and their peers.Do questions about the world make you curious? Do you search for explanations of events that you observe? Science is the process of finding answers to questions like these, through the pursuit of measurable, observable evidence. This year was the 12th annual Eden Prairie Schools Science Fair. We encouraged all interested students to answer questions through the process of inquiry and experimentation.Vital components of scientific experimentation included isolating, controlling, and testing variables.If you are interested in participating in next year's Science Fair, here is some information to get you started:Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 Eden Prairie Schools Science Fair: sixth grade physical science: Anush Viswanathan (acid-base indicators), sixth grade earth science: Aarushi Vyas (harnessing solar energy), sixth grade life science: Harini Senthilkumar (Dandelion: not your average weed), seventh grade physical science: Tarun Palani (growing crystals), seventh grade life science: Iesh Gujral (algae count), eighth grade physical science: Connor Holm (the distance a ball bearing travels), and eighth grade life science: Christopher Thompson (glowing red cells).
