    Calling all Las Lomitas Students!

    Science Wonders:
    Student Science Fair 2017
    6:00 – 8:00 PM - Thursday, May 11
    Cano Hall, Las Lomitas Elementary School

    What is Science Wonders?
    Science Wonders is a science fair event to encourage your children to be inquisitive about the world around them, as well as an opportunity to have FUN while sharing the joy of discovery with the school community.

    Where do we start?
    Step 1: Ask a question! Think of something that excites or interests you.
    Step 2: Think of how you can find an answer to your question (hint: there are many great books in the Las Lomitas Library and on websites listed in the Student and Parent Guide at the URL above).
    Step 3: Write down your ideas and develop a plan to present your “science wonder” to your schoolmates.

    Will my child’s project be judged?
    This is a recreational, voluntary activity, designed to be NON-COMPETITIVE and child-driven. Please do this activity with your child after their schoolwork assignments or on weekends. There will be no judging or class merit for participation, but each child will receive a certificate for completing a science fair project.

    Can we still come if we don’t participate this year?
    Yes! Everyone is welcome to come to the event and view all the creative ideas that Las Lomitas students bring to life at Science Wonders.

    How do I sign up?
    In order to help us coordinate, send an RSVP email to Scott & Dawn Smithson at by Friday, May 5. Please include the student's name, grade and teacher in your RSVP. Thank you!
