Simon Fraser Elementary School

About the project

Simon Fraser Elementary School is hosting a school science fair on the topic of human body! Approximately 100 students from the senior 5 classrooms (grades 4-7) will be creating their own project displays. Students will have prepared a prompting question about human body that they want to focus on from previous classwork, and make their science fair display from research on that question. The students will then get to present their final project to the rest of the school and their families on the last day.
