Calling all scientists, engineers & volunteers to participate on February 16th!

VA Students:  The Van Arsdale Science Fair is just about one month out, so there is still plenty of time to put together a project (all grades) and/or a glider (4th – 6th)!  Projects can be Experimental, such as under which light a plant grows best or a Presentation of a scientific topic your child finds interesting, like the solar system or why bears hibernate.  They can do it on their own or grab a partner!  More information on project guidelines, the glider competition, as well as the sign-up are on the PTSA website. The sign-up deadline is this Sunday (1/21), all you need is the topic to sign-up!  http://vanarsdaleelementary.digitalpto.com/va-science-fair-rules-and-guidelines/
VA Siblings & Friends:  We are also looking for some middle school and/or high school volunteers to help-out at the Van Arsdale Science Fair on Friday afternoon/evening, February 16. Great opportunity if your big kids need service hours! No science expertise needed. They can sign-up through the link below & contact Kristen with any questions!
VA Parents & Colleagues:  We are looking for a few scientists or engineers to set-up a few live demos and be available for interaction and questions during the judging portion of the Science Fair. You’d be more than welcome to have your kids help you! This is expected to run approximately 4:30 – 6:00 pm on Feb. 16 (this is an early dismissal day), then you can stick around for the glider competition and awards or head-out!  Please contact Kristen directly to volunteer or share ideas/suggestions!
