Science Fair 2015 Sat. Dec. 5, 10:00 am – 1 pm
Dear MSA parents,

Magnolia Science Academy (MSA) would like to invite you to participate as a judge in the annual school wide science fair on Saturday, December 5. 2015. Students will be encouraged by your presence, and the MSA community would greatly appreciate your time and contribution.

Magnolia Science Academy is a charter school serving students 6th through 12th grade. At MSA, students have the opportunity to be in classes with a maximum of 30 students, taught by specialized teachers for each subject area. Additionally, students have the opportunity to become involved in after school programs, as well as science and math competitions. MSA also provides free tutoring which enables the student to excel in any subject. Parents are able to access information regarding their children’s classroom activities and grades via the internet. The curriculum at MSA focuses on science, math, and technology. In order to encourage further exploration of these areas MSA organizes annual science fairs and math competitions.

We are looking for scientists, technicians, engineers, educators, professors and other people with a strong background in science or technology to judge the projects and help us recognize our students’ work. Middle school students will be participating in a traditional style Science Fair with a prepared science poster board and a short presentation ready. High school students have been asked to prepare a presentation of their project using digital media which will be presented to a panel of judges one project at a time. In addition to meeting the new Common Core State standards, this will develop life skills as our high school students prepare for college and job interviews.

Details for the program are as follows:

Middle school judges will be asked to judge 30 projects over a 3 hour period. Judges may walk around independently and judge projects they are interested in. They may take breaks as necessary. Judges will be viewing projects from grades 6, 7, and 8. Students will have a short presentation prepared and judges are welcome to ask questions.

High school judges will sit on a panel and interview students one at time. A list of questions will be provided to the judges and there will be a teacher sitting on the panel. Several short breaks have been scheduled throughout the block of time. We are asking that those judging high school be available the entire time slot.

Judges are asked to arrive at 9:30 for a brief judges meeting prior to the start of the Science Fair at 10 am. 6th graders will present their projects at 10 am, 7th graders at 11 am, 8th graders atnoon. High school students have signed up for a 10 minute time slot between 10 am and noon.

Magnolia Science Academy would value your participation and insights in this year’s program. Please confirm your attendance through: SignUpGenius
