March Website message:
The end of STEM Fair is rapidly approaching !
Have you began constructing your prototype?
Have you tested and collected data from your prototype?
How is your engineering report coming along?
You have 30 days from today to have a finished engineering report and a fully built working prototype. If you have not begun work on either, you have your work cut out for you for the month of March. This project will be a major portion (30-50%) of your 3 quarter and 4th quarter grade for science. Do not take this project lightly. If you save everything to do a week before the due date, that effort will be reflected in your overall grade.
The design process is meant to take time and effort. Are you putting time into your project every day, even if it is only an hour? Are you putting your prototype in the hands of those who would use your invention? Are you testing your prototype to see if it does what you claim? Who have you included in your “design team”? This could be parents, your peers, specialists in the field of your research, or even an engineer?!
If you haven’t started the hard work, get on it! Time is running out.
I wish you success in your efforts!
In math classes, we are working hard solving algebraic equations, and soon will be moving into statistics and probability.
