Science Fair Judge Mrs. Rincón-Ponce with students

For the past couple of weeks our students have been working hard preparing for MOS’ yearly Science Fair.  Our judges, Mrs. Rincón-Ponce, Ms. Cueva and Mr. Garcia really had their work cut out for them because all of our students did a fantastic job applying the Scientific Method to their science experiments.  This year, MOS saw many creative submissions from our students. Some involved candles, slime and others mapped how the brain reacts to different stimuli. When asked about the importance of the science fair here is what one of our judges, Mrs. Rincón-Ponce had to say:

Preparing a science fair is an excellent example of what education experts call active learning or inquiry. This hands-on approach to learning is a cornerstone of successful science teaching in our school. As a judge, it is very important to observe how students apply the Scientific Method to research and conduct experiments in the classroom. Therefore, the value of science fairs does not only have an impact on student learning, but increases interest in students to become scientist or engineers one day”.
