The first annual Science Celebration Night at Schmitz Park Elementary was not your average science fair. In fact, last night’s event wasn’t a science fair at all.
Christine Morrell, who shared photos today, explained that it was “organized in partnership with teacher representatives from each grade and the PTA … a combination of grade level exhibits and interactive experiences hosted by local organizations (including Museum of Flight, Issaquah Fish Hatchery, the Woodland Park Zoo Raptor Program, Chief Sealth International High School World Water Week, Islandwood/Homewaters, the Mountaineers, and more.)”
She added, “The goal is to show students how fun science can be, both in school and out in the real world … through interactive, hands-on experiences, kids can experience many applications for scientific discovery.” She says volunteers from the West Seattle High School science program helped too.
