2018 SJCS Science Fair Results

2018-2019 NEFRSEF Team

We would like to congratulate our middle school science fair winners for 2018-2019. These students rose to the occasion and took the top awards by grade level. There were 135 outstanding projects that were judged on Thursday, December 6th, 2018, which made for some very tough competition for our winners. We were fortunate to have over 30 judges from the community here to evaluate our students on their project knowledge and use of the scientific method. The top three students in each grade level will go on to compete in the Diocesan Science Fair on Friday, January 18th 2019, at Bishop Snyder High School. The nineteen students will compete in the Northeast Florida Regional Science and Engineering Fair Monday, February 11th, 2019, at the Moroccan Shrine Center. A special thanks to Firehouse Subs for catering lunch for the judges, it was delicious!

Please join us in congratulating our winners.

Science Fair Awards Ceremony

Thursday, December 6th, 2018
6:00 pm in the Gymnasium

Please join us as we celebrate all of the students of San Jose Catholic School who have participated in the 2018 SJCS Science Fair. Awards will be given for grades 1-8. Projects from grades 1-8 will be on display. All are invited.

Science fair is an opportunity for students to apply the scientific method to conduct independent research. The results of each student’s research is presented in a school wide science fair–or sponsored local science fair– where the student’s efforts are displayed and where students are interviewed to determine scientific merit. Students who have been judged to have used the scientific method properly and who have demonstrated thoroughness in their studies and effort are awarded prizes and are advanced to compete in regional, state, national and international science fairs.

The overall goal of the science Fair is for the students to gain lifelong skills in the areas of critical thinking, problem solving, data analysis, communication, and public speaking.
