All things science will take center stage on Thursday, February 12 at Tashkent International School as elementary and middle school students put on the annual TIS Science Fair.
For elementary students, the evening will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with a variety of hands-on science experiments in the elementary and secondary libraries for students and parents to enjoy.
In the MPR and Black Box Theatre, middle school students will display their science and designe projects in a traditional science fair format. The evening will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
All parents and the TIS community are invited to come and view the projects. The grade 6 students have been working on an interdisciplinary unit with design on the physics of rubber band cars. The projects in grade 7 range from rocket power to the Stroop Effect, while in grade 8, they have investigated topics ranging from bacteria to fruit power.
They will also hold an ultra-distance race for grade 6 rubber band cars at 7:30 p.m. Last year’s record was 15 meters. Can this year’s sixth graders do even better?
The TIS science fair is open to the entire TIS community.
